Independent eyewear designers and their stylish selections will inspire and invigorate opticians and visitors at Hall of Frames Zurich – 12th and 13th September. The event has particular significance this year, as after a long hiatus due to the pandemic, people are able to gather again. Plus, the show is being held in the stunningly renovated Zurich Convention Centre. The location is picturesquely dramatic, as the Hall of Frames event will take place in the Garden Hall wing – which provides beautiful lake and Swiss mountain views.
Hall of Frames offers an excellent opportunity for opticians and independent designers to experience European independent labels, and discover, network and collaborate in a very cordial and relaxed atmosphere. All health and safety regulations are strictly adhered to and will be updated as needed, prior to the show’s opening date.
