NEW YORK—International Vision Expo & Conference launched a new technology-focused booth, called Vision Monday’s Eye2 Zone, last month at Vision Expo East. The new area, developed jointly with Vision Monday, allowed attendees the opportunity to explore some of the most innovative technologies and the expanding capabilities of eyewear and its role in everyday life.

“We are thrilled to introduce this new segment into the show,” said Deborah Malakoff Castor, vice president of shows and meetings for The Vision Council.

Andrew Karp, editor of Vision Monday’s Eye2 e-newsletter and curator of the Eye2 Zone, added, “The idea behind the Eye2 Zone was to introduce a new segment to attendees that would educate them, and thereby the consumer, on the exciting possibilities technology has on our industry’s products and services.”

With six visionary brands participating, the booth offered an insider’s look into some of the most interesting products unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show and other high-tech events. The six products featured were:

  • 4iiii—Sportiiii’s 4iiii system utilizes color LEDs and voice prompts to provide performance feedback without distraction during physical activity.
