Reed Exhibitions & The Vision Council

International Vision Expos, the worldwide conference and exhibition for eye care and eyewear, are trade-only events which draw more than 30,000 eye care professionals each year. Co-owned by Reed Exhibitions and The Vision Council, International Vision Expo gives back to the entire ophthalmic community. Proceeds from International Vision Expo are used by The Vision Council to educate consumers about the importance of vision care and the options in eyewear and other related products. In 2012, The Vision Council reached millions of consumers with its messages through marketing materials, public relations outreach and strategic partnerships.

Please Support Official International Vision Expo Exhibitors

We ask eye care professionals attending our event to support the manufacturers and suppliers who officially exhibit on the show floor, in The Galleria and The Underground at the Javits Center. We understand that other manufacturers may wish to set appointments to preview their collections and equipment off site. Please respect the commitment of time, money, personnel and support for the entire industry by choosing to honor appointments with the 560 suppliers who exhibit at International Vision Expo. International Vision Expo would not be the largest fashion and medical eyecare event in the Americas without their participation.
