Vision Expo West - Las Vegas in the Fall

Alliance Buying Group at Vision Expo West 2016The Alliance Buying Group is proud to take part in the annual International Vision Expo each fall in Las Vegas, Nevada. Each year, over 23,000 eyewear and eye-related industry professionals from over 90+ countries meet for the biannual Vision Expo meeting. With education, social and business objectives, the expo caters to longstanding industry professionals, including AOSA alumni, as well as students and young professionals looking to make their mark in the industry.

The International Vision Expo is also a proud sponsor of the national eyewear campaign Think About Your Eyes. Alongside The Vision Council and American Optometric Association, this campaign helps promote educational vision health through various PR and public awareness efforts.

Continuing Education & Networking for Eyewear Professionals

Annually, the conference provides over 320+ hours of CE opportunities for industry professionals, including free credits! With topics ranging from tips to improve patient experience to developing and differentiating your practice, you can’t afford to miss the expo! And, as an Alliance Buying Group member you can get free Vision Expo West Exhibit Hall Registration!

On top of formal CE credit courses, each expo also includes a number of impromptu pop-up talks to keep attendees engaged. This casual format continues to focus on important eyewear practices and health topics, but commands a shorter attention span and engages participants directly on the exhibition show floor.
