We’re back from an exciting trip at Vision Expo East in New York! We got to see many of our customers as well as introduce Uprise to new customers. We got there two days before the show to get the booth set up, and on Friday, our optical software demos were in full swing! Booth traffic was busy, but we enjoyed every minute of it! And of course, it wasn’t all work and no play. Many of the VisionWeb staff are active members of the Optical Women’s Association and we were excited to be part of the Pleiades Award Reception. Read on for our recap!
Optical Software Demos at Vision Expo
You can easily spot a VisionWeb staff at any show in our coordinated outfits and we’re proud of it!
We were hard at work showing optical software demos of Uprise at the show! If you didn’t get a chance to stop by our booth and would like to learn more about Uprise, our cloud-based practice management and EHR solution, you can still request a demo here. We also promoted our latest eBooks, which included a practice management and EHR buying guide, EHR dictionary and Meaningful Use guide.
The best part about tradeshows are the swag! We gave out plenty of tote bags, pens, PD sticks, and buttons at this show. We also had floor graphics that led customers into the booth!
OWA members got to mix and mingle at the reception.
The Pleiades Award Reception was hosted in the Marchon Showroom with a silent auction that ended the night. The Optical Women’s Association is a non-profit organization and the proceeds of the auctioned items go to OWA programs such as professional development workshops and webinars, that are in support of promoting leadership roles of women in the industry.
Sherrie Rogerson was the recipient of the 2014 Pleiades Award who gave a touching speech that brought many to tears that night. The Pleiades Award spotlights an individual who has shown commitment to the mission of the OWA by fostering the growth of women in the industry. Congratulations Sherrie!
Don’t worry if you didn’t get a chance to visit our booth at Vision Expo East. We’d still be happy to provide a demo of Uprise at your convenience, and we look forward to meeting everyone at the next show!
