New partners for opti

October 20, 2016 Posted by opti


opti has expanded its circle of exclusive trade show partners with further European associations. For example, ECOO (European Council of Optometry and Optics), ophthalmic optics associations from Switzerland and Denmark, as well as VDCO (German association for contact lens specialists) will cooperate with opti in 2017. Last but not least, the long-term partners SPECTARIS (German industry association for optical, medical and mechatronic technologies) and ZVA (central association of opticians and optometrists) take part in this professional European network.
opti lives on the knowledge of the exhibitors and visitors. They help opti to make progress from each trade show to the next, to repeatedly react to the new needs of the market with an equivalent offer, and to draw attention to new developments of the sector. opti, which is organized by GHM (association for craft exhibitions mbH), has become a European platform for expert dialogue with an enlarged repertoire of supporters.
opti offers a wide range of European perspectives which were decisive for VDCO and their chairman Maarten Hobé: "It provides our association with the best European network. Here, we can exchange information with contact lens specialists from other countries and talk about developments and future challenges. We are delighted to be the new partner of the trade show and to be able to give professional advice as contact lens specialists and optometrists."
The cooperation with individual associations often goes beyond professional advice, which is desired of opti by the ophthalmic optics member companies. Thanks to the new partnerships, opticians and optometrists can profit from more specialist lectures that are moreover a highly attractive accompanying programme for individual target groups. "opti gives us the opportunity to raise awareness on the various projects and work streams that ECOO carries out. We will for instance present the European Diploma in Optometry and Qualifications in Optics on the stage of the opti-Forum", says ECOO chairman Folkesson. "With opti we have a partner who recognizes the importance of achieving a high common European standard in optometric and optics education and who has been active on this topic since 2008. Together with opti, we can create a strong network to support the next generation in their career planning."
