Sightsavers to exhibit at UK’s largest optical event

February 2024

Sightsavers is attending the 100% Optical conference in London to raise awareness about avoidable blindness and invite eye health professionals to help protect sight worldwide.

Taking place at the ExCel conference centre in east London on 24-26 February 2024, 100% Optical is the UK’s largest event aimed at ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, distributors and wholesalers. The event hosts more than 250 exhibitors and attracts around 10,500 UK and international visitors.

Attendees can visit Sightsavers at stand W270 to learn about our work to protect sight in Africa and Asia and how they can get involved as an eye health partner. Visitors will also be able to have their photo taken wearing some unusual protective eyewear, from welding masks to crazy sunglasses.

The booth was designed by Sightsavers’ creative partner Barker Langham and created by Reeves and Bond, with support from Leach.

The free conference runs from 10am-6pm on 24-25 February and 10am-5pm on 26 February. You can register to attend on the 100% Optical website.
