Meanwhile, the first SILMO Bangkok in Thailand was held on 20-22 June, with organisers saying it “reflected success as the new gateway to ASEAN’s optical industry” with 3,750 national and international trade visitors from 42 countries attending.

Loy Joon How, general manager of Impact Exhibition Management Co, said: “The theme ‘Business Meets Fashion’ was reflected through the showcases of the latest trends and eyewear collections from over 250 brands, and aimed to bridge the gap between suppliers and manufacturers of eyewear, lenses, instruments, equipment, machinery and business services by facilitating and providing learning opportunities.

The Thailand International Optometry Conference, organised by the Association of Thai Optometrists, attracted 550 optometrists and opticians to its two-day program.

The second SILMO Bangkok will be held on 19-21 June 2019 at Impact Exhibition and Convention Centre.
