Vision Expo West registration opens

Eyewear and education will be on offer at the event’s 30th anniversary show

Vision Expo West

Registration has opened for Vision Expo West, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Las Vegas from 26–29 September.

The event will showcase designer eyewear and medical innovations alongside networking opportunities and an education programme.

Organisers of the show highlighted that of the 430 exhibitors expected at this year’s event, more than 60 have exhibited at Vision Expo West since it started in 1988.

In September, Vision Expo West will celebrate these exhibitors, who have helped fund the Think about your eyes awareness campaign. The initiative educates the public on the benefits of vision health.

An opening night party will be held at the Brooklyn Bowl for the first time and a welcome party for the education programme, OptiCon, will be held at Public House.
