Silmo 2020 in Paris, which was scheduled to take place from 2 –5 October, has been cancelled due to the continuing impact and associated risks of COVID-19.
The 2020 Silmo d’Or awards will go forward and is open to all companies registered to date.
Silmo Academy will issue its annual scholarship to support a scientific research project in vision and optics.
Through a specialised application, Silmo Next – a laboratory of ideas, a forum for inter-professional discussions, and a showcase for creation and innovation – will present the summary of the work that began two years ago, probing into the future of the sector, product developments, and the optical profession: “Towards a techno-responsible optical and eyewear future.”
Silmo will commence a series of small scale events, beginning on 4 and 5 October 2020 in the heart of Paris, and repeated every Monday through October in a different city, such as Bordeaux, Lyon, Rennes and Brussels.
SILMO 2021 will return to the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition centre from 24 to 27 September 2021.
