In addition to the German optical industry and opticians' associations, Spectaris and ZVA, various other European associations have given their support to the Opti fair in Munich next January, including the Danish and Swiss optical industry association and VDCO, the German association for contact lens specialists. ECOO, the European Council of Optometry and Optics, will have an opportunity to raise awareness at the fair on various projects and developments such as the European Diploma in Optometry and Qualifications in Optics.
