Vision Expo West 2021
September 22 - 25, 2021
Vision Expo West 2021 concluded on Saturday, September 25. The four-day event, which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada, from Sept. 22-25 at The Venetian Convention Center & Expo, brought together thousands of members of the vision care industry.
Vision Expo West 2021 featured more than 280 exhibiting companies across several distinct neighborhoods and offered cutting-edge continuing education as well as engaging programming. Presented under the banner of VisionEd, Vision Expo’s education program offered more than 190 hours of education, ranging from the latest business strategies and fashion trends to patient education tactics and cutting-edge innovations. Returning to the Show, OptiCon®@Vision Expo offered an unmatched education program and exhibit hall experience for opticians, contact lens practitioners and ophthalmic allied professionals.
Additionally, The Seen served as a main stage destination and a hub for collaborative learning as the host venue for the EYE2EYE Series panels, an educational series of interactive panels featuring industry experts in discussion on topics ranging from fashion trend forecasts to tactics for refining patient care, and the Career Zone-Student Lounge, a destination for students to connect with optical companies that are actively recruiting and explore career resources. The Seen also housed the Innovation Stage, the Show Floor destination dedicated to groundbreaking content and state-of-the-art products and services revolutionizing the industry.
Vision Expo West 2021 also brought together key industry groups and supporters. Prevent Blindness, the nation’s leading volunteer eye health and safety organization dedicated to fighting blindness and saving sight, hosted its Person of Vision event in conjunction with the Show. The 2021 award honored Marc Ferrara of Jobson Medical Information with all proceeds from the event supporting the sight-saving programs of Prevent Blindness.
