We’ve already written plenty of articles about why and how students benefit from attending trade shows and conferences, now we’d like to present to you video we shot on the exhibit hall floor at Vision Expo West, with optometrists, industry execs and company reps telling you how your experience at these conferences will benefit you now and in the future.

Take a look at the quick 4 minute video below to hear from optometrists about the importance of networking and opportunity for chance encounters with a future employer, or industry reps about finding a practice that has technology for externships to better prepare you once you graduate, understanding the retail side of practice (helps pay those bills/loans!) and becoming more familiar with the profession as a whole. Many thanks to Apoorva Jinka, a 3rd year SUNY student and our multi-talented Director of Marketing, who shot and edited the video:
