Most awaited – Dubai Optical Show to be held at Dubai World Trade Centre, from November 13 – 15, 2018…

Why Dubai? Why not Dubai??

Indeed we can hear you asking these questions!!

For the trade; going to an Optical Show – is all about getting the latest trends most cost efficiently.

The choice of what is good will depend on what is good for individual clients and their customers, considering that India has a wide range of culture, tradition and styles as well as economic freedom.

For years, we have been shopping for the Eyewear fashion range from various countries to cater to our specific needs. The Dubai Optical Show has got them all under one roof with the support of the relevant organisations like:

  • ANFAO (Italian Association of Optical Goods Manufacturers),
  • MIDO (International Optics, Optometry and Ophthalmology Exhibition)


Branded as – Dubai Optical Show Vision-X – it brings together the top MENA (the Middle East and North Africa) buyers in the only eyewear and eye care trade event of the region from November 13 to 15, 2018 at Dubai World Trade Centre. With a strong line-up of industry announcements and participation from new innovators and known international and regional fashion eyewear brands, Dubai Optical Show Vision-X is set to produce a comprehensive three days of business matchmaking and exhibition.

As an indication of the positive response to the show’s new concept, 20 new Italian exhibitors and many others from France, Germany and across MENA have recently confirmed their participation. To continue attracting the most important names in the industry to attend, Dubai Optical Show Vision-X has been conducting a roadshow to key countries with KSA, Iran, Lebanon, Kuwait and India already covered and Turkey, Jordan, Egypt and more underway. In addition, to guarantee the best ROI and a real boost for business networking, the event promises to provide its exhibitors the new hosted buyers programme, with more than 200 key buyers to be hosted in Dubai by the show organizer.

Exhibitors and selected hosted buyers will have access to an effective business matchmaking system that allows them to request for an appointment based on availabilities and block their schedule once a meeting is confirmed. Throughout the process, both parties are assured an excellent online and onsite support to get maximum benefit from this system.



The exhibition will be divided into five different communities which are International Village, Design Gallery, Middle East Square, Lenses and Contact Lenses, Stage and Healthcare Suppliers. The International Village is the pavilion that exhibits international brands from across the globe, each one positioned with its own stand.
