What is VISION?

VISION Hi-Tech Training & Expo first opened its doors in 1992 with around 250 attendees and approximately 35 exhibitors, who set up their spaces in the parking garage of the Hilton Inn. Dragsters were used to fill unused exhibit space.


Now cut to VISION 2022, where the annual event brought in a record-breaking 3,200+ attendees from 43 states and 3 Canadian provinces. 1,900 of those attendees took training, a further 48% of which were first-timers to the conference. 144 exhibitors filled the entirety of the Overland Park Convention Center's 60,000 sq foot exhibit hall with overflow of booths into the hallway.

While things have changed since 1992, there is one thing that VISION has maintained throughout those years: its mission.

To bring quality education to the independent automotive service professional.
