Vision Source Exchange Program Draws a Top-Flight Crowd to Nashville

By

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—The Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center here was the setting for Vision Source Exchange 2017, the 26th annual member meeting of the optometric alliance Vision Source. The “Music City” meeting, which ran May 3 to 6, drew close to 4,700 attendees over four days (a more than 10 percent increase over last year) and the exhibition show floor easily sold out. Attendees included eyecare clinicians, optometry staff, leading optical industry vendors and guests.

Meeting highlights included two special keynote addresses that drew standing-room crowds to the huge Gaylord ballroom: former Dallas Cowboys and Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman and Shark Tank investor Barbara Corcoran.
