The organizers of Expoóptica, the international optics and optometry fair in Madrid, have introduced a series of new features for its upcoming edition, aimed at raising the fair's profile. The first change involves the dates of the trade show. In order to adapt to the international fair calendar, and following a demand by the sector, the next edition will be held on April 4-6, 2014 at Feria de Madrid. Fashion will be one of the pillars of the 2014 edition, along with two other big sectors - vision and audiology - for which organizers are preparing dedicated tools. Training will also have an important place at the fair and will be one of the central themes of the technical sessions at the Expoóptica Forum, where participating companies can give marketing presentations and demonstrations, in the same hall and the same framework as the fair itself. Finally, Expoóptica 2014 will again welcome OPTOM, the International Optometry, Contactology and Ophthalmic Optics Congress, to enable synergies between business and science. Some networking areas will be set up specifically for congress attendees in the Expoóptica hall.
