03/13/2018

Alexandria, VA – March 13, 2018 – As eyecare professionals gear up for packed schedules of education, shopping in the Exhibit Hall and networking in the days ahead, Vision Expo has rolled out a full slate of entertainment and experiences to keep the energy high and attendees engaged throughout all four days of the upcoming Show.

Musical performances will take center stage to boost the atmosphere throughout the halls. Acoustic guitarist Rianne Mision will perform in several locations throughout the Exhibit Hall on Friday. On Saturday, a live band kicks off St. Patrick’s Day celebrations followed by more acoustic Irish entertainment featured in the Exhibit Hall lounges through lunchtime.

Experiences are integral to Vision Expo, both in the Exhibit Hall and after-hours. Vision Expo now boasts nine lounges and two retail cafes for visitors. More than charging stations and rest stops, many lounges will feature complimentary amenities including espresso in the Galleria, Underground and OptiCon Hub.

Make your way to any of the Exhibit Hall lounges to enjoy a rotating menu of snacks, followed by Vision Expo Happy Hours from 4:30 to 6 p.m. On Saturday, don’t be surprised to find Irish themed beverages as you network with fellow attendees and exhibitors. Featured events include crowd-favorites like the Vision Expo’s Opening Night Party with the Bad Habits: Eye Docs of Rock and the ODs on Facebook Party, both on Friday evening at B.B. Kings.

New this year, a Corporate Optometry Panel & Reception will take place on Friday in the Innovation Stage. Plus, OptiCon @ Vision Expo registrants can join the party at Stitch Bar & Lounge on Friday from 7:30–9 p.m. to meet, mingle and celebrate. Stop by the new OptiCon Hub (Booth #G1164) before the party to pick-up your wristband to attend or purchase a ticket.
Vision Expo education opens tomorrow and the Exhibit Hall opens Friday at the Javits Center in New York, NY. Visit VisionExpoNY.com for more information
