Industry Relevance

SILMO Paris has humble beginnings. The annual trade fair came onto the scene in 1967 and at that time kicked off a highly successful legacy with only 58 exhibitors. A lot has been changed in the intervening decades and each new edition has slowly but surely taken over the Paris-Nord Villepinte Parc d'Expositions. SILMO Paris promises an intense program. Areas will focus on frames and raw materials, lenses and optical equipment. The Absolutely Fabulous Laboratory is a hub for the newest technological achievements and optometrists and optometrists are all intrigued by what’s been planned for the ever-popular SILMO ACADEMY! Interest in the new has always been driving organisers to improve on the fair and one of the biggest highlights is the Futurology area.
