The show expects to welcome over 9000 UK and international visitors and host more than 200 exhibitors during the three-day show.

100% Optical event director, Nathan Garnett, said: “As the biggest gathering of people in optics in the UK, 100% Optical in January 2020 could not be better timed to kick off what will be a landmark year for the industry.”

“Our partnership with the AOP, coupled with media support from OT, has helped us develop and curate a show designed for optical professionals, by the very people we are looking to attract. With sustained year-on-year growth, both in terms of visitor and exhibitor numbers, the 2020 show is set to be our most exciting and successful yet,” he added.

New exhibitors at the show in 2020 include Marcolin, Raen and Nine Eyewear, while Specsavers, Marchon and Zeiss have all be been announced as returning exhibitors.

The Future Practice Hub has been redesigned in order bring the future of practice to life on the show floor. It will include a consulting room, diagnostic suite, dispensing area and seminar space with CET points on offer in each section.
