|“In business for 20 years, Chilli Beans has 720 stores in Brazil and 50 stores in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the US, selling sunglasses, optical frames, watches and bags under our own brand. This is my second time attending the Hong Kong Optical Fair to look for new suppliers and new business opportunities. I have found two potential suppliers from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan for the supply of good-quality and value-for-money sunglasses and optical frames. We plan to place an initial order for 50,000 pieces with each supplier. The fair is well-organised and it’s easy for me to walk around.”

|“We own three eyewear brands and supply optical frames, sunglasses, cases and displays to 700-plus optical shops in Argentina and 50-plus shops in Uruguay. This is my fifth time visiting the Hong Kong Optical Fair. I have found a quality supplier of optical cases at the fair and plan to place an initial order of around US$50,000. The fair is the perfect place for me to meet with existing suppliers and look for new ones. The suppliers here provide high-quality products.”
