Reed Exhibitions has appointed Eileen Baird, who previously handled is security industry events for 5 years, as vice president and show manager for its International Vision Expo and EyeQuest fairs in the USA, replacing Beth Blake who moves into jewelry and other sectors. At its next session in New York on March 14-17, Vision Expo East will host for the first time a new ?Youth Summit,? with seminars intended to maximize the children's market up to the age of 18, at a time where the US industry is lobbying hard to get state governments to enact legislation on compulsory eye screening for school age children.
