The 28th ExpoOptica that ended on March 14 brought out more than 9,200 visitors and almost 100 exhibitors. This was down slightly from the 9,833 visitors and 119 exhibitors recorded last year. Sixty-two percent of the exhibitors were from Madrid, Andalusia and Catalonia, though Spaniards from other areas, such as Castile-Leon and Castile-La Mancha, had an increase in participation. Foreign visitors made up represented 26 countries, with the majority from Portugal, followed by France, Germany and Italy. The organizers noted that holding the International Optometry, Contactology and Ophthalmic Optics Congress at the same time of the exhibition worked well, contributing to the professionalism of the show.
