Jointly organised by SILMO International and MP Singapore, the show welcomed over 250 international and local brands from over 15 countries representing most product families and ranges in the optics and eyewear industry.

With 50% of its attendance from overseas, Silmo Singapore first edition confirms its ambition to become the new business meeting place in Southeast Asia. Top five of the 44 represented countries were Malaysia, China, Australia, Vietnam and Indonesia.

The exhibition featured three unique spaces that aim to explore future trends and innovation in the eyewear and eyecare sector – FUTUROLOGY, SILMO Trends, and SILMO Talks.

FUTUROLOGY examined the theme of techno-responsibility through the lens of innovations and trends that will gradually shape the future of optics and eyewear. SILMO Trends showcased the trends and novelties in 2023 and how design is shaped by our environment and society while SILMO Talks delved into best practices, sustainability, and Optics Special Interest Groups.

SILMO Academy, a conference platform that was held concurrently with the exhibition and targeted mainly at optometrists and opticians, provided an opportunity for the participants to garner key insights and best practices from renowned experts across the globe. The 2-day scientific symposium explored topics such as Myopia Management, Lifestyle and Ophthalmic Practice, and Primary Care. The Academy programme was curated by the International Opticians Association (IOA).
