Like every year, this year’s show will continue to be both an educational and networking platform for attendees
Where: Las Vegas, USA
When: September 16-19, 2015
One of the eye care profession’s largest destination for learning and discovery and, most importantly, fulfilling needs to purchase the newest products and technologies, the 2015 edition of the International Vision Expo West will be held from September 16-19 (Education: September 16-19 and Exhibition: September 17-19) at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA.
The event continues to be one of the industry’s most revered platforms that facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas, apart from being a popular buying hub. This year’s show is all set to start with a bang. The opening night party will be hosted on Thursday, September 17. The opening event will double up as a networking platform, giving the dignitaries from the industry a unique opportunity to connect with each other in an informal environment. Additionally, the opening night also features a performance by Eye Docs of Rock, a famous all-optometrist band. The following day will see special events being held for OD’s on Facebook and Vision Source. The expo also includes special sessions for students that will be hosted on Saturday. Through these sessions, students are expected to gain greater insight into the key trends governing the growth of the industry as both opticians and OD’s will be interacting with them during the afternoon and evening. Being crowd sourced, these sessions will put the attendees in control of the content that they need the speakers to cover.
