There will no longer be an MSOO optical fair in downtown Moscow. Exhibitors prefer to show at the new Ophthalmologic Optics fair in the Crocus Expo exhibition center on the ring road around the Russian capital, which is now linked to the city by underground. After a first session in December 2009, its February edition hosted 110 exhibitors and welcomed 2,500 visitors. The number of exhibitors increased to 130 at its recent show on Sept. 14-17, where the mood was said to be positive. The next show is scheduled for Feb. 22-25, 2011.
