The Silmo d’Or remains the most coveted international prize for optics professionals. For its 30th edition, EssilorLuxottica once again took the title in the Vision category. Other names were revealed, including Mykita, which officially became the first winner of the Responsible Company Award.

Every year at the same time, optical professionals gather at the Paris Nord Villepinte site for Europe’s second-largest optical trade show: Silmo Paris.


Once again this year, from September 29 to October 2, the event lived up to its reputation, with 35,000 visitors discovering optical trends and doing business with 929 exhibitors from 42 countries.


A real highlight of the show, the Silmo d’Or ceremony rewards the creativity and innovation of the entire industry. This legendary award is a guarantee of visibility and notoriety unrivalled in the sector.
