Vision Expo West
September 18-21, 2024
The Venetian Expo | Las Vegas, NV

We have instituted a thorough review process for media in order to maintain the highest standard of excellence for Vision Expo. Press passes are provided to members of the media whose publications cover the ophthalmic industry or publications that cover fashion, healthcare, technology or lifestyle industries.

Thank you for your interest in attending Vision Expo West as a member of the media. Complimentary registration is available for a limited number of qualified journalists. 

Who Qualifies for A Media Badge at Vision Expo West?

  • The Vision Expo West Communications Staff will consider granting media credentials to applicants from accredited industry trade publications, newspapers, and broadcast media outlets (editor, reporter, blogger, podcaster, photographer, producer, booker, and writer).
  • Only working journalists may attend the show; CEOs, publishers, advertising, media or sales representatives, and custom publishers are not eligible to register as journalists but may participate through general registration.

If you provide or solicit marketing services/agency work to exhibitors, you do not qualify as media and will not receive a media badge. Your badge will be revoked if you are observed providing or soliciting these services.

You must register as an exhibitor with the company you are representing.


In the Press Office, there are complimentary amenities for members of the media include beverages and light refreshments, access to Vision Expo and exhibitor media kits, and a dedicated staff member to answer any questions.

Dates and times for the Press Office are coming soon.
