A new event in the optics & eyewear sector: Silmo in Istanbul

Scheduled to take place on 11 - 14 December 2014, it is ideally located in Istanbul, the economic, artistic and cultural capital of Turkey and bridge between Europe and Asia.

With annual growth of around 10%, the optics and eyewear market in Turkey is exhibiting a dynamism and potential that promises fantastic development opportunities for companies within the sector. 
The zone of influence of this new trade fair will extend from the countries bordering Turkey in the Near and Middle East as far as East Africa, the preferred target of Turkey's economic development.

On the banks of the Bosphorus, visitors and exhibitors will be able to rediscover the key elements of the Silmo brand, together with the experience and original communication know-how of leading local experts.
