SILMO Trade Fair 2018
There is always something new to see and someone new to meet.
The SILMO Trade Fair was held from the 29th to the 01st of October in Paris this year. This show, amongst others during the year, is where people from all around the word in the eyewear business meet to discuss business opportunities. From manufacturers, distributors, brands, designers, there will be something for anyone and everyone.
Experiencing those shows is quite intense, we meet with new people, we create new relationships and nurture existing ones, we develop leads and connect with new players, and we learn of new technologies and keep track of emerging trends. There is always something new to see and someone new to meet.
It is always a privilege to participate in those trade-fairs and this year was no different. We went to the show with new technologies and several new products and prototypes in both sunglasses and optical frames. Those frame shapes well quite well received and earmarked by several of our customers and prospects.
After four days of serious work and networking, we got back to Mauritius with heaps of insights and facts to share with the team. Most importantly, with an exhaustive “to-do-list” to be completed that will in turn create opportunities and help start new projects for the next season.
