Registrations Are Up for the Next Silmo

The next Silmo will be held September 25–28, 2015, and already organizers expect an increase in registrations and many new exhibitors.

Since registration opened two months ago, the number of exhibitors having reserved their space is 15% higher than it was at the same time last year. Also, the demand for exhibition space has increased 4%. So far, Silmo has 30 companies taking part for the first time.

Organizers are delighted with these indicators and with the success of  European optical fairs in general this year. Opti Munich started the year off with 25,850 attendees, compared to 24,000 last year. Mido was next in February, counting a record 49,000 attendees, which is an increase of 8.7% over last year.

“We are benefiting from positive signals,” explains Philippe Lafont, president of Silmo Paris. These benefits include a European economy emerging from recession, an optics sector with a talent for renewing itself, the appeal of Paris for a number of international visitors and the ability of Silmo organizers to create content.

“Silmo is a platform for sales, a showcase for product offerings and trends, a resource for information and training,” says the president.
