The fair was founded in 1967 in Oyonnax, in the French birthplace of glasses manufacture. It moved to Paris 15 years later to enhance and facilitate its international position. By the end of the 1980s, ‘fashion was fashionable’ and introduced the trend forums and presented shows of unique glasses. In 1993, the organisers decided that the date of the trade fair that animates an entire industry should be in autumn.
During the same decade, the organisation anticipated the changes in the sector, founding the Village to host creative new brands, and the first SILMO d’Or international awards for creation and innovation. The fair’s 40th anniversary also illustrated the international reputation of the organisation, with a record number of visitors. We hope that the 2017 jubilee will be equally appreciated.
