Optrafair Exchange – the UK’s leading exhibition, but not as you know it!
The FMO is delighted to announce Optrafair, the UK’s flagship optical exhibition, is officially open for registrations!
Alongside a larger exhibition will be a completely restructured education programme coordinated by the FMO with the support of its partners in the sector. This diverse programme covers eight distinct streams; Dispensing, Contact Lenses, Orthoptic, Refractive, Health & Lifestyle, Technician, Clinical Optometry and Business.
There is no better place to exchange knowledge, ideas and inspiration than a live event of the scale and depth offered by Optrafair and the 2019 event is widening its reach to incorporate Fashion, Medicalisation and Optics.
Join us in Birmingham on March 30 – 1 April 2019 to take your practice to the next level.
