The announcement was made at this year’s trade show on Saturday (18 April) and revealed that the 2016 three-day event will be held slightly earlier in the year, running from Saturday to Monday, 9–11 April.
Optrafair director, Malcolm Polley, said: “The NEC is Optrafair’s natural home and a popular venue with both exhibitors and visitors. It is accessible from all parts of the UK and the larger stand space allows the major technology companies in particular, to launch, showcase, as well as demonstrate new and existing products to maximum effect.”
Mr Polley added: “The show is a great way for anyone involved in the optical industry to get inspiration each year and find the means to enhance their business.”
The FMO will once again be partnered by Optician on the next Optrafair.
