Vision Expo Extends Free Registration in Response to Strong Momentum in Attendee Registration
Friday, May 7 2021 | 15 h 37 min | Events, News, Press Release
The Vision Council and Reed Exhibitions, organizers of Vision Expo, announce that free registration for Vision Expo East 2021, taking place June 2-5 in Orlando, Florida, will be extended indefinitely. The decision to extend the free registration deadline is based on the recent, notable spike in attendee registration. Additionally, given the recent announcements regarding new industry supporters, new exhibitors, and details on the programming planned for The Seen, including the EYE2EYE Series, Innovation Stage and the Career Zone, the extended deadline also reflects an effort by the Show organizers to give the community time to make their plans based on these new Show details.
“Due to restrictions on international travel, we always knew that Vision Expo East 2021 would look a little different than a typical, international Vision Expo East in New York City. Given these realities, it has been truly thrilling to have our expectations exceeded again and again – by the response from the industry, the enthusiasm from exhibitors and the momentum in attendee registration,” said Mitch Barkley, Vice President of Trade Shows and Events at The Vision Council, co-owner of Vision Expo.
More than 200 exhibiting companies, of which more than 60 are new to Vision Expo, have committed to Vision Expo East.
“What’s so exciting about Vision Expo East Orlando is that we are expecting a comparable ratio of attendees to exhibitors as a typical Show, just on a smaller scale,” said Fran Pennella, Vice President, Vision Expo, Reed Exhibitions. “While we won’t have as many exhibitors or attendees given the international travel restrictions, the density of exhibitors and attendees is still on-track to be the same as a typical Show.”
Vision Expo East’s educational program, together with OptiCon®@Vision Expo, will open Wednesday, June 2 and exhibits will open Thursday, June 3.
