The Vision Council and RX, co-organizers of Vision Expo, announced that Vision Expo+, a complimentary digital extension of the Vision Expo experience, will be offered from Friday April 1 to Friday, April 8, 2022. Vision Expo+ will be delivered through ShopVISION, Vision Expo’s global sourcing platform.
VisionExpo+ extends the Vision Expo experience in a virtual format to accommodate members of the vision care community from around the globe who are unable to physically attend Vision Expo East 2022. Vision Expo+ will offer a number of virtual experiences, including online showrooms from Vision Expo East’s more than 360 exhibitors and recorded content from events taking place at The Bridge, the main stage destination for collaborative learning, including EYE2EYE Series discussions.
