Testimonials

Our exhibitors said this about Optrafair 2017:

"Optrafair has been fantastic from a CET perspective. We've been fully booked, and packed out all sessions, we even had to turn people away. Overall we've had loads of positive comments from attendees. Recently we have launched two products: Hycosan Dual and Optase lid wipes; both launches and CET sessions have drove foot fall to the stand, providing a huge commercial benefit"
Paul O'Reilly, Group Marketing Manager, Scope

“It’s great having a trade show in Birmingham, we love having this trade show on our doorstep because we get lots of customers coming to visit our stall from all over the country, so it’s fantastic. Optrafair is a great show”
Zoe Smith, Head of Marketing, Birmingham Optical

"We've done really well and were busy from the start with lots of customers, it has been none stop. We really like how the look of the show has freshened up from 2016"
Nicky Clement, Marketing Manager, Eyespace
