The early arrival of summer in New York does not seem to have deterred visitors from seeing the exhibits at the 30th edition of the International Vision Expo East, which ended Sunday, April 17.
With over 16,000 people, early reports show that attendance for 2016 matched Vision Expo’s record-breaking levels from 2012 and 2014. Visitors from 94 countries were able to get a peek at new products from over 5,000 brands.
Among this year’s innovations, free access to Wi-Fi was greatly appreciated by visitors. Especially since the Vision Expo app contained a geo-tracking function, making it possible to quickly find the shortest route to a booth. That’s a tremendous asset at an event of this size!
Next year’s Vision Expo East show dates are March 30 to April 2, at the Javits Center.
