Surrounded by parkland, the Fort Mason Center is a vibrant cultural hub located within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Richard Mewha, founder of LOFT Eyewear Shows, is excited for the coming event, “Obviously the last year and a half has been a difficult time for our industry but we are excited to be returning to San Francisco and catching up with our vendors and accounts. We have been really encouraged by the positive energy of our vendors and the eagerness to get back to some sense of normalcy”
