Created in partnership with Balluun, the world category leader in business-to-business marketplace technology, ShopVISION is designed as a one-stop virtual marketplace and year-round global hub for buyers to connect with suppliers and source vision care products and services.

“We’ve built ShopVISION from the ground up to be a best-in-class digital marketplace for the global vision care community: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year,” said Matthias Clock, Marketing Director, Vision Expo, at RX. “With more than 1,200 highly engaged buyers researching thousands of products the platform, we are generating rich data that will help us improve the platform, add new features, and find innovative ways to help buyers discover new and exciting products.”

ShopVISION is designed with a powerful suite of features for seamless product discovery. The platform allows buyers to easily source products, build relationships with suppliers and manage all of their product discovery and research needs—from finding the latest styles, creating favorites and wish-lists, and requesting one-on-one meetings to posting questions on the social timeline or streaming product demos.

“ShopVISION is the perfect complement to Vision Expo’s in-person trade shows,” said Mitch Barkley, Vice President of Trade Shows and Meetings at The Vision Council, co-owner of Vision Expo. “ShopVISION extends our sourcing offerings and provides a modern and global way to conduct business year-round and on-demand.”
