L.A. Eyeworks returned to the Opti trade show after a break of three years. Because the company is very successful in France, it has usually been sufficient to exhibit at the Silmo trade show in Paris. However, business in Germany is drifting off a little, so the company decided to make its presence felt at Opti and search for new contacts with opticians during the show. In 2011, the company's business in Europe was stable, while sales increased steadily in the U.S. As the company is in a transition period in Europe, it has engaged new agents in Scandinavia, Finland, Spain and the Benelux countries. In China, L.A. Eyeworks is experiencing slow growth due to the difficulty of selling non-branded products to Chinese customers.
