“The event has been very well-organised, and from an exhibitor’s point of view it’s good marketing. I’ve seen good communications out in trade journals as well as online and email communication. This is well received because it’s all about having as many of our optical professionals here at the exhibitions like this. Manufacturers like ourselves can talk about innovation, products and partnerships.”
