The Vision Council Hosts Optical Innovation Summit

Last week The Vision Council hosted the second of four events in their new Summit Series. The Optical Innovation Summit—held June 5–6 in Boulder, Colorado—gathered C-level executives and emerging companies in the vision care space to discuss the inevitable changes affecting optical retail.

With the goal of advancing technologies and business models, participants attended a series of discussions, and ideation and reflection sessions, designed in collaboration with Bart Foster, strategic advisor to The Vision Council, that focused on opportunities in the industry, consumer trends and some of the challenges emerging companies are facing.

Thank you to all who participated and made this event a beneficial and enjoyable experience!

The Vision Council will continue their Summit Series with the Marketing Insights Summit, to be held Oct. 15–16 in Boulder, Colorado.
