Six things to look out for at #SILMO15

silmo logo

Next month is SILMO15 and we at Galaxy will be making our pilgrimage to Paris where eyewear manufacturers converge with fashion brands, ready-to-wear collections and optical professionals.

As with all trade fairs, SILMO is big (with 33,000 visitors last year), can be a little overwhelming and is definitely all about the planning. So, what should you plan to see whilst you’re there?

Connected Opticians

Optical practices are changing with the help of connected technology. Here at Galaxy we’ve been one of the pioneers of paperless practices, using IT systems to knit together patient and order data, product and range management and staff training.

At SILMO, creators of web-based infrastructure will be showing what they can do for opticians. It’s exciting times for improving customer experience and service.

Technological Innovation

The latest optical processes and materials are showcased at SILMO. Learn about 3D printing of frames, ultrathin lightweight acetate, wood, carbon fibre and textiles

3D Printer

Could 3D printing change frame design?

Changing Tastes

Whilst it’s fun to check out the bleeding edge of eyewear design, SILMO is all about getting a feel for the changing tides of eyewear fashion. What’s coming in and what’s going out? Viewing the core ranges of so many optical brands should give you a good impression of what people are really wearing in 2015.

The Happy Colour Forum

This trends forum introduces visitors to explore SILMO’s most colourful new products. Sure to bring a smile to your face, even if you’ve been on your feet all day.
