Excitement has been mounting for weeks, if not months and finally it is here! Tomorrow at 10am the doors will open for the second time over at the London ExCeL where all things optical will be on display. Of course I am talking about 100% Optical 2015! Am I excited??? Maybe a wee bit, there are so many things I want to check out and I just hope my 7 months pregnant self and my 30 week old baby can cope with all the walking. It will be tiring but a lot of fun at the same time. I know the 100% Optical team have been busy today (and for the past couple of days) settings things up and making sure everything will run smoothly. When you come to the show over the next 3 days you will see all the effort they have put in and all the new features they have added such as the giant Fight For Sight #BlinkWinkThink wall. Have you done your bit for the charity?
I can promise you, this show is bigger and better than last year so you optical professionals will not be disappointed. As for you consumers, you just need to wait and see what eyewear I will be bringing you over the next 3 days on the blog. Anything I see that I like the look of I will be blogging about! If you are on a look out for new frames I hope this show will give you some framespiration 😉
If you haven’t registered then you still have time to do so but if you are looking to book seminars etc then unfortunately I think they are all taken, they have been very popular! However, everyone is welcome to see the catwalk show as it is first come first served and there will be shows on at 11am , 1pm, 3pm and 5pm. The frame workshop also welcomes drop in sessions at 1pm and 3pm so there is still plenty to do even if you are unable to book any seminars!
Last but not least, the show ends at 6pm and then it is PARTY TIME!!!! Last year the party was pretty damn good so I highly recommend it because the team at 100% Optical knows how to throw a good party. If you an exhibitor reading this then get a good nights sleep because it will be a long 3 days I am sure and for all visitors I look forward to seeing you all as I will be walking around the show myself to suss out some stylish specs. On that note… the packing mayhem shall begin in my walk-in wardrobe. I will see you all tomorrow and don’t forget to say hi if you recognise my face. I may be waddling along because I am 7 months pregnant but I certainly do not bite. BYE & see you tomorrow!!!!!!
