Having just recovered from the emotions of Vision Expo in New York, it’s time to start thinking about the next big event, to be held September 14 to 17, 2022, in Las Vegas. Organizers say they’re preparing a show that’s not to be missed.
Last year, more than 280 exhibitors answered the call to present their latest creations and innovations to eye care professionals. As is tradition in Las Vegas, many of them also welcomed visitors in their suites at the Venetian Hotel. Attendees also had access to more than 190 hours of continuing education, ranging from eye health and patient management to technological and business innovations and fashion.
There were also some new features that are expected to return this year, such as The Seen, a section focused on collaborative learning. For example, the EYE2EYE series of panels was presented, during which experts discussed several topics of importance to eye care professionals.
The show will be held this year at the Venetian Convention Center & Expo. “Why not at the Sands?” regulars may ask.
Actually, it is the same location! In March 2021, the Las Vegas Sands Group sold the Venetian Hotel, the Palazzo and the Sands Expo and Convention Center to VICI Properties and Apollo Global Management for US$6.25 billion.
In September 2021, the new owners changed the name of the Sands Expo to the Venetian Expo. So regulars won’t feel out of place!
