Attendance at the 2014 Vision Expo East was up 6% over 2013, with the New York event breaking its previous attendance record set in 2012. The definitive figures will be available later in April.
“The 2014 event proved once again that eyecare professionals appreciate the very diverse and integrated opportunities available only at Vision Expo,” said Tom Loughran, group vice-president for Reed Exhibitions. “They see the benefit of arriving early to take advantage of the professional development content, and then applying the knowledge they’ve gained to the demonstrations and experiences of the show.”
This year, wearable technology occupied a major place in the show, particularly in the Eye2 Zone, which was filled with “smart” glasses ready to compete with Google Glass and other innovations.
The International Vision Expo & Conference East will be back at the Javits Center in New York City from March 19 to 22, 2015, when visitors and exhibitors will be able to take advantage of a brand new subway station and technological improvements.
