A RICH HISTORY.
For 30 years Vince Leonardo managed the in-house tradeshow department at Rochester, New York-based, Bausch & Lomb, one of the world’s largest suppliers of eye health products, including contact lenses, lens care products, medicines, and implants for eye diseases. When the company decided to out-source the department, Vince started RES (Rochester Exhibit Services) and his first major client was Bausch & Lomb.
After 20 years, Vince turned the company reigns over to his son, James Leonardo, who has led the growth of RES, becoming one of the nation’s top 50 tradeshow and event organizations – named by EVENT MARKETER magazine in their annual profile of top industry performers.
