Two different eyewear trade shows were in held in different parts of Moscow last month, organized by different companies. The winner was apparently the fair held at the more modern Crocus Exhibition Center on Moscow's ring road, which has been recently linked to the city by subway. It got about 70 exhibitors, including the major players in the market, while the show held at Expocentr, the older venue inside the capital, attracted only about 40 exhibitors. The organizers of the traditional MSOO fair have asked prospective exhibitors to come to a meeting in Moscow on March 16 to decide what to do next September.
