SILMO PARIS 2019, the Pre-program
The 2019 edition of SILMO PARIS promises to be a dynamic one, with very active sales (92% of objectives are already reached with 5 months to go before the trade fair opening) and the activity programme is as rich as ever. A detailed overview.
This futurology space remains the central prospective optical hub at the heart of the trade fair, with theme lectures, innovative business corners, and a discussion space where visitors may better encounter and understand what is going to transform the optical and eyewear industry, products and distribution services.
For this edition, the concept of anticipation takes on a whole new meaning with a world premiere of the Silmo HACKATHON!
For 24 hours non-stop, five international multidisciplinary teams of five people each are invited to imagine tomorrow’s retail world. Open to professionals of vision, distribution, merchandising, design, social sciences, marketing and production – from the optical industry or elsewhere – this collaborative event should provide stimulating answers to the changes underway.
SILMO D’OR AWARDS
The SILMO D’OR awards have been recognising the best in creation and innovation since 1994. These now very eagerly-awaited awards – and the ceremony held for them in an emblematic location of the French capital – are celebrating their 25th anniversary.
SILMO ACADEMY will be held on Sunday, September 29, 2019 on the theme of “refraction”, for which the full program of lectures and speakers will be specified at a later date. For the fourth consecutive year, the Silmo Academy Scientific Council will award a grant of €10,000 to an optical vision scientific research project. The competition is open to all researchers and research teams who wish to apply, following a selection process.
