NORWALK, Conn.—Registration is now open for International Vision Expo East, scheduled to return to New York's Javits Center March 14 to 17, 2013 (Education: March 14 to 17, Exhibition: March 15 to 17). The event, co-owned by The Vision Council and Reed Exhibitions, will showcase one of the largest collections of eyewear, accessories, leading-edge medical equipment technologies and continuing education, under one roof.
"Last year our event broke historical attendance records," said Tom Loughran, vice president for Reed Exhibitions. "This year we're back with more educational offerings, expanded networking opportunities and, of course, the latest selection of product launches, lines and licenses from renowned brands and emerging designers that you won't find anywhere else."
Timed for spring, buyers can source hot-off-the-runway collections in one sleek, sophisticated, fashion-forward shopping experience. The updated floor plan at International Vision Expo East will offer eight pavilions, spanning four levels, allowing eyecare professionals to compare and source the most products and trends in one place.
In addition to presenting the newest in eyewear trends and high-tech equipment, eyecare professionals can select from more than 325 hours of groundbreaking continuing education, developed by a conference advisory board representing the breadth of the field. Whether trying to keep pace with relevant practice management trends or understanding new government mandated tasks, the conference program has something for every role and experience level. Focusing on core competencies—disease diagnosis, treatment and management; clinical application of products; and healthy business solutions—informative classroom instruction connects to hands-on knowledge on the show floor.
New for 2013, the conference advisory board has added the following features to the program: Chief eXperience Officer Certificate (CXO); Macular Degeneration and Nutritional Supplements; OD/MD Collaborative Care; Guided Practice Modules; Glaucoma; and Frame Buyer Sessions.
