Vision OPTImum Program

The Vision OPTImum Program delivers the buyers you want to see. International Vision Expo is committed to delivering key buyers and influencers that our exhibitors have asked to see. Are we missing one of your key customers? Use the OPTImum Member Nomination Form to let us know who you want added to the program.

We are always looking for insights to help our exhibitors connect with key decision makers and senior level management at the show. Our OPTImum Program Manager will be reaching out to all of our new exhibitors in the months leading up to the show to learn more about your objectives in exhibiting and what you need to make your participation a success.

Unofficial Contractors

Vision Expo West warns exhibitors to exercise caution when dealing with or responding to solicitations from unofficial contractors offering services for the show.

Each year in the months just prior to Vision Expo West, unofficial contractors target show exhibitors with emails and faxes in attempt to solicit orders for show services (i.e., carpet, advertising, shipping, etc.). Some of these solicitations may bear the Vision Expo West name and logo with the intent of confusing or misleading exhibitors into thinking that the contractors sending them information are associated with Vision Expo West. Exhibitors should report misleading or deceptive solicitations they may receive from unofficial contractors to Vision Expo Management.

Vision Expo West maintains a list of Official Vision Expo West Vendors. Exhibitors are not required to use Official Vision Expo Vendors, but please be aware that outside contractors must be approved by the show and may require exhibitors to pay additional costs. Exhibitors may also incur other financial obligations in the event their designated contractors fail to perform.

Alerts to Exhibitors

BEWARE of the Fair Guide

Reed Exhibitions and International Vision Expo West do NOT support the Fair Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or Vision Expo. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Fair Guide from Construct Data, its publisher, which use the name of Vision Expo West – do not be fooled. Construct Data currently operates out of Slovakia (it has previously operated out of Austria and Germany).

BEWARE of the Expo-Guide

Reed Exhibitions and International Vision Expo West also do NOT support the Expo-Guide -- it is NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or Vision Expo. Please be aware that you may receive solicitations for the Expo-Guide from Commercial Online Manuals, its publisher, which use the name of Vision Expo West – again, do not be fooled. The Expo-Guide currently operates out of Mexico. For further warnings on the Fair Guide and the Expo-Guide, please check out (the website was set up originally to deal with the European City Guides, but it now addresses the Fair Guide and Expo-Guide as well as several other similar matters).

And please remember – the only directories and guides affiliated with Reed Exhibitions are those published by Reed Exhibitions, including the official show directories and the Expo Show Dailies. If you have any doubts about a directory/guide solicitation using the Vision Expo name (for example, if the solicitation requires payment made to an address in a foreign country), please contact a Vision Expo salesperson immediately.

BEWARE of Travel Scams

onPeakInternational Vision Expo & Conference, in partnership with the OnPeak, are committed to providing you with the best travel deals around. OnPeak is the official travel provider for International Vision Expo & Conference. Don't be fooled by offers from other parties using the International Vision Expo & Conference or Vision Expo West names – they are NOT affiliated with Reed Exhibitions or Vision Expo. Remember, if the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is. At the very least, prior to booking with a party other than OnPeak, please check the prospective vendor's rating at

Beware of List Scams

Please be aware that online list sellers soliciting International Vision Expo exhibitors and claiming to have Vision Expo attendee list for sale are NOT affiliated with, or endorsed by, Reed Exhibitions or International Vision Expo. International Vision Expo does not make its exhibitor or attendee contact lists available to any third party. You should note that the online sellers acknowledge in their email that their list does not come from Reed Exhibitions; they claim to have assembled their list by phoning and emailing contacts from their database.

If you have any doubts about email or mailing list solicitation using the Vision Expo name, please contact a Vision Expo salesperson immediately.
