OSA and 100% Optical announce pioneering partnership

October 21, 2021

The largest optical event in the UK, 100% Optical, has announced its first-ever partnership with the Optical Suppliers Association (OSA) when it returns to ExCeL London in January 2022.

100% Optical, which will run from 22nd to 24th January 2022, will be the first major optical event since the start of the global pandemic.

Stuart Burn, OSA chairman, commented: “100% Optical will, for the first time, incorporate the full backing of the OSA and its members; we can therefore promise a show with more exhibitors, more education, and more excitement than ever before.

“Our collaboration is helping to bring the very best in optics all under one roof. This means expanding our horizons into areas such as ophthalmology, contact lenses and the NHS.”

 The OSA provides a platform for the optical industry to network, engage, influence regulation and spearhead developments in optics in the UK. It provides a thriving network for companies involved in all aspects of manufacturing, distribution, and supply to optical practices.

Nathan Garnett, 100% Optical show director, commented: “Having the OSA on board is yet another sign that the show is going from strength to strength, and will enable us to offer visitors even more insight into the future of the optical industry.”
