All Eyes on New York for Vision Expo East in April 2016

Our bags are packed and we’re off to New York City for one of the very best conferences of the year—Vision Expo East. We’ll be packing in a lot into a short trip—training, education, frame buying, and networking with other optical pioneers from across North America. The conference focuses on the convergence of education, fashion, and technology in the eyecare industry, and it’s the best place to be to see what’s new, what’s visionary, and what’s “next” in eyecare and eyewear. We wouldn’t miss it.

Meet the Visionaries

Screen Shot 2016-04-06 at 8.31.55 PMWe’re excited to Meet the Visionaries who are revisioning and revolutionizing our industry. Presenters include the Eyewear Designers of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (edCFDA), a group created in 2014 to inspire, empower, and promote awareness of eyewear design, and today the group includes names like Gai Gheradi and Robert Marc. We have appointments and can’t wait to hear their stories about how they came to become eyewear designers, and learn what strategies they have to increase eyewear’s status as fashion accessory.

Trend Watching

What’s hot now and what’s hot next—we’ll be on the lookout for the answer to both questions in New York. Not only do we want to know about the latest eyewear trends, we want information on new technologies; eyewear should look great, but perform even better.

Training and Education

Making sure we stay current on training and education means our customers are receiving the best possible advice and service. Whether we’re learning about new lens materials, sales techniques, or social media strategy, our goal is to improve every interaction we have with you—our client.
