Nikon Lenswear UK has been announced as the headline sponsor of 100% Optical’s exciting Studio area – an ultra-cool industrial space in the heart of the show’s Eyewear Zone.

100% The Studio Sponsored by Nikon will feature brands that focus on providing quality, hand-made, bespoke, futuristic designs or luxury eyewear from all across the globe; the area will be a fun networking hub throughout the three-day show, and feature live DJs and themed cocktails.

A familiar presence at the show due to their striking stand designs, Nikon Lenswear UK will also be proudly unveiling the latest innovations in optical technology. Attendees will have the chance to discover spectacle lens solutions that provide stunning clarity, whilst meeting the ever-changing demands of the modern lifestyle.

Running from 25-27 February 2023 at ExCeL London and committed to championing independent eyewear designers, 100% Optical will showcase a myriad of the best independent eyewear designers in the Studio section – brands that focus on providing quality, hand-made, bespoke, futuristic designs or luxury eyewear from all across the globe.
