September is one of the busiest trade show months of the year. I attended 5 shows in September including 3 that are my favorites: (1) Vision Expo West which is all about fashion frames and free contact samples! I wear glasses and contacts, so I love seeing all the newest fashionable eye wear, not to mention all the free eye solution samples, (2) Global Gaming Expo is such a fun show. It will make you feel like you're on the casino floor. The largest manufacturers of gaming software and hardware will showcase their latest and greatest games. These guys know how to work hard and have a good time, (3) Interbike which is everything to do with biking. I'm not a big biker, but it's fun to see all the newest and coolest biking gadgets, technology and apparel. This show also has a lot of samples of the best health and wellness dietary supplements.
Vision Expo West - It's the preeminent destination for unveiling the most visionary designs, products, technology, medical advances and business solutions within and around the eyecare industry, and it's the only place where you can experience it all first-hand under one roof.
