DALLAS—After nearly two years of growth and evolution, My Vision Show is preparing for its biggest show yet. The upcoming hybrid event, dubbed "See What’s New," will take place June 23-27 and will feature an ever-growing lineup of exhibitors and speakers from various niches of the independent optical and eyecare industries. Updates to the show’s platform include a new reception area, increased booth capabilities, improved professional networking, and a greater ability to connect with attendees and exhibitors alike.

My Vision Show’s See What’s New showcase will feature a diverse array of independent brands to ensure that show-goers are able to access various facets of the industry from lens equipment to frames and accessories.

Likewise, the show will see a variety of new sessions from new and returning speakers including Pam Theriot, OD, Barry Santini, Maria Sampalis, OD of Corporate Optometry, and Greg Owen. The See What’s New showcase will also feature Anika Goodwin, MD, founder, and CEO of OpulenceMD Beauty.

My Vision Show will also, for the first time ever, be going hybrid. An in-person portion of the show will take place in Dallas on June 26, on the My Friend’s Lab property, and will feature a walk through of the lab with products and giveaways from several My Vision Show exhibitors including David Green. Tickets to the event are currently on sale and can be obtained by contacting My Vision Show, Optical Near Me, or My Friend’s Lab.

The show’s production team consists of Charlene Nichols, founder; Irina Yakubin, OD; reknowned opticians Ryan Markey and Jon Herring; optician and 20/20 Magazine contributing editor Barry Santini; repair master Sarah Beaureau, SEO; optical expert Ed Ritter and Robert Bell, Eye Coach.

My Vision Show will continue to exclusively host independent exhibitors within the optical and eyecare industry and has no plans of moving into a physical space, according to show organizers. As physical shows return, My Vision Show is positioning itself as a platform for those who wish to continue to have hybrid events.

The See What’s New event will feature a reveal of a plan created by My Vision Show to partner with organizers to create hybrid physical and virtual events. These events will be designed with the goal of reaching out across international optical and eyecare communities. “We also want to acknowledge that physical shows are coming back, and we are excited to see their success. We are already partnering with leading influencers to support their physical events with a virtual component to facilitate hybrid events on our platform,” said Charlene Nichols.

As with prior shows, prospective attendees will need to register on myvisionshow.com and will receive an invitation with their virtual login for the event. Attendees can also count on My Vision Show’s social media channels for sessions streaming and replay opportunities. Attendees seeking continuing education credits, however, will need to catch the sessions live.
