SILMO and copenhagen specs

Launched in 2014 in the Danish capital, copenhagen specs’ goal is to highlight independent eyewear to independent opticians looking forward to offer their customers different products and therefore distinguish themselves from mainstream and mass produced eyewear.

6th edition of copenhagen specs in Denmark just ended with good results: 77 exhibitors, 1076 visitors from 18 different countries…

From October 5th to 6th, Berlin will welcome the very promising second edition of Copenhagen Specs in the German capital.

“We share the same vision on independent eyewear and business development” stated both parties and “working together for the benefit of the community seemed quite obvious.”

Together with Silmo network, copenhagen specs, while its successful concept and unique atmosphere will remain as it is actually, will benefit from an enhanced visibility among eyewear trade fairs but more important, will be able to develop other destinations in Europe and around the world at a quicker pace.
