Key Points

Las Vegas-The Suites at Vision Expo West (VEW) will be moving from the traditional location inside the Venetian Hotel to the new Palazzo Las Vegas. The move affords eye-care professionals with an upscale, yet efficient show experience taking advantage of its close proximity to the show floor and continuing educational sessions, organizers said.

The Palazzo, a sister property to The Venetian Las Vegas, was opened in December 2007 and is part of a recent expansion of The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino.

The Suites' exhibitors said they have a positive opinion about the new location.

"It also is a good move for eye-care professionals who are looking to preview a wider variety of inventory in today's economic times, yet still enjoy a relaxing atmosphere in which to do so," said Sheila Vance, chief executive officer and designer for Sama Eyewear.

Reservations are recommended for private showings of the latest designs in The Suites, and can be made directly with exhibitors. For more information about VEW, to be held in late September and early October, visit http://www.visionexpowest.com/.
