Additionally, Vision Expo East will debut new Exhibit Hall neighborhoods—BLOCK and NEXT—to afford attendees access to celebrity-influenced and independently designed urban eyewear as well as fresh innovations from up-and-coming designers. “Vision Expo is deeply connected to the vision community and is committed to preparing a Show that offers attendees a comprehensive learning experience as well as the chance to explore new ideas and innovations,” said Mitch Barkley, The Vision Council’s vice president of trade shows and meetings. “Offering free registration ultimately benefits the entire optical industry as we gather more individuals in one location to learn, grow and drive the industry forward.” OptiCon @ Vision Expo will also return to the Javits Center with new features including The National Federation of Opticianry Schools (NFOS) College Bowl, where 12 students representing NFOS member opticianry schools will come together to compete in a fast-paced quiz competition on all things optical.Attendees should look for further Show information and announcements in the upcoming weeks regarding exhibitor activations, new education sessions, student events and more.To register for Vision Expo East 2019, visit VisionExpoNY.com.
