ExCeL London is set to host 100% Optical (23-25 April) and The National Wedding Show (23-24) this week.
Organised in partnership with the Association of Optometrists (AOP), 100% Optical attracts 9,570 UK and international visitors and more than 200 exhibitors.
The eight edition of the show will provide a platform for professionals to source the latest eyewear, technology and solutions for their businesses, and network with industry peers through one-to-one meetings and parties.
Organisers have extended the show’s times with an earlier opening of 9am across the three days. During a ribbon-cutting on Saturday at the show’s entrance, 100% Optical’s show director Nathan Garnett will welcome exhibitors and visitors.
Garnett said: “Visitors can expect our very best show yet, with our strongest and most comprehensive exhibitor line up to date. It’s been over two years since the last 100% Optical and that extra time has allowed us to add new companies, and compile the best speaker programme we have ever had at the show.
“Registrations for this event are higher than ever, demonstrating how much people have missed meeting each other, seeing new and existing suppliers and taking care of their professional development at 100% Optical.”
Meanwhile, the UK’s biggest wedding show, The National Wedding Show, will feature hundreds of wedding specialists who will offer a range of wedding inspiration and advice. It will include catwalk shows and a VIP experience on offer that comes with a complimentary glass of champagne, a goody bag and reserved seating to the catwalk.
