The bright lights of Las Vegas welcome our optical industry again for Vision Expo West!
Every September, as the weather begins to change in parts of the U.S., thousands of industry professionals board planes, trains and automobiles and head to the desert for another edition of Vision Expo West. The oversized setting of Las Vegas presents a fantastic backdrop to explore bold new frame design trends, colors and materials on the show floor and in private suites. And the constant glare of the flashing lights and in-your-face technology of the packed casinos sets you up perfectly to be mesmerized by the latest digital surfacing and lab automation equipment. There are days’ worth of trainings for eyecare professionals to continue to expand their knowledge, to hone their craft and to learn about the latest technologies, products and business strategies. And then, after a full day of visiting the show, participating in classes and attending meetings, the night life of Las Vegas welcomes us with open arms to let loose and enjoy the great people, brands and companies of our industry at world class parties and events. It is a whirlwind of a few days but one that never disappoints.
Of course, not everyone can make the trip to Las Vegas. But the good news is that today, social media allows you to stay closer to the action than ever before. A quick tip to stay engaged from afar is to use the magic of Twitter to find out what others are seeing and saying about events anywhere around the world.
