Registration Now Open for Vision Expo West 2020

Vision Expo announces that attendee registration for Vision Expo West 2020, taking place Sept. 23–26 in Las Vegas at the Sands Expo Convention Center, opens today, Thursday, June 11, 2020 under the banner of ONE Vision – ONE Focus – ONE Future. Additionally, co-owners of the Show, The Vision Council and Reed Exhibitions, have released information regarding plans for health and safety policies at the Show, including Reed Exhibitions’ creation of a Health & Safety Task Force to develop and implement policies and best practices around COVID-19 response and prevention.

The goal of the Health & Safety Task Force is to organize Vision Expo West in line with guidance from public health officials, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), state and local governments and the protocols put in place by venue partners. The Health & Safety Task Force will continually update and adjust the policies and best practices to be implemented at Vision Expo West as more information and guidance becomes available from Las Vegas government and public health officials. At this time, the Health & Safety Task Force is focused on five operational pillars:

  1. Show layout and logistics, including floorplans and recommended booth guidelines
  2. Physical distancing, including capacity and flow of people
  3. Health screening and medical response
  4. Cleaning, sanitization and personal protective equipment
  5. Conference, special events and talent handling

“The safety and wellbeing of everyone in attendance at Vision Expo West is our top priority. With that in mind, we are committed to providing ongoing communication regarding the health and safety protocols that will be implemented at the Show,” said Fran Pennella, Vision Expo event vice president at Reed Exhibitions. “We are monitoring the Las Vegas reopening rollout very closely and will develop and update our protocols as needed over the coming weeks. We will communicate regularly with all our attendees and exhibitors so that we can bring the vision community together again under the best possible circumstances.”

“Following a period of disruption and unprecedented challenges for the industry, it is more important than ever to bring the community together for an inspiring weekend of connection, learning, and doing business. To that end, we are organizing the show around the concept of ONE Vision – ONE Focus – ONE Future. Vision Expo West is where the optical industry will unite and get back to business,” said Mitch Barkley, Vice President of Trade Shows and Meetings at The Vision Council. “We are pleased to share that we have had an overwhelmingly positive response from exhibitors so far, with a majority of our Vision Expo East exhibitors onboard, as well as several exhibitors participating in Vision Expo West for the first time. Additionally, we look forward to sharing details in the coming weeks on the new and exclusive content originally planned for Vision Expo East 2020 that will be showcased at Vision Expo West 2020.”

Additionally, The Venetian Resort and Sands Expo Convention Center have developed extensive protocols for cleaning, health and safety. The “Venetian Clean” Commitment was developed with information provided by the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD), CDC and WHO as well as additional guidelines and procedures for sanitation and cleaning, with an emphasis on the prevention of virus transmission.

To further supplement the extensive guidelines and procedures that The Venetian Resort and Sands Expo Convention Center have in place, the Vision Expo Health & Safety Task Force is considering additional protocols like a ‘no handshake’ policy and non-invasive entry screening. Final protocols will be announced closer to Vision Expo West in accordance with the latest public health guidelines and government recommendations.
