WOF 2023: A Resounding Comeback

WOF 2023: A Resounding Comeback

The 21st China Wenzhou Int'l Optics Fair (WOF for short) was successfully held in last the week on 15th -17th June. Which marked the triumphant return of our event after a challenging three-year during the Covid-19 pandemic. 


The fair served as a significant milestone in reconnecting industry professionals, manufacturers, designers, and eyewear enthusiasts after three years of epidemic control by the Chinese government. It provided a platform for rebuilding business relationships, rekindling collaborations, and reigniting the industry's spirit.

During the event, we had the pleasure of reuniting with many familiar faces, as well as encountering numerous new acquaintances. It was heartwarming to reconnect with old friends, exchanging stories and experiences.



We were delighted to welcome a multitude of international brands to visit WOF. Their presence added a global perspective and showcased the international influence of our event. 


WOF TALKS provided a valuable platform for industry professionals to engage in meaningful exchanges and discussions. The series of insightful talks and panel discussions brought together thought leaders, experts, and visionaries from various sectors of the optics industry. Attendees had the opportunity to gain valuable insights, share knowledge, and explore emerging trends and challenges shaping our industry.


And also, we are pleased to announce that WOF Taizhou Station will be released on WOF TALKS. The WOF Taizhou Station, themed "Purchasing directly from the Eyewear Factory," is scheduled to be held from October 20th to October 22nd. This specialized event in Taizhou will serve as a dedicated platform for buyers and sourcing professionals to connect directly with manufacturers and explore the latest trends, products, and sourcing opportunities in the optics industry. With a focus on streamlining the procurement process and establishing direct relationships with source factories, the WOF Taizhou Station aims to facilitate efficient and cost-effective sourcing for attendees. 



The successful return of the 21st China Wenzhou Int'l Optics Fair after a three-year hiatus reaffirms the resilience and determination of the industry. We are immensely proud of the collective efforts made to overcome the challenges posed by the pandemic and revive this prestigious event.


As we move forward, we remain committed to fostering growth, innovation, and collaboration within the eyewear industry. We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the fair and look forward to welcoming you to next year of the China Wenzhou International Optics Fair. Save the date 10th-12th May 2024.


Thank you!
