25 - 27 April 2014
Australian Vision Convention 2014
Welcome From The President

Welcome optometrists, exhibitors, partners and families from across Australia and throughout the world to the annual Australian Vision Convention on the Gold Coast.

AVC2014 offers many of the benefits of past meetings – a superb clinical program, a breakfast/brunch session each day, the Friday Welcome Reception in the Exhibition Hall Foyer, an exclusive circus spectacular gala dinner, complimentary optional online assessment for additional CPD and a complimentary crèche facility.

To allow delegates and their families to commemorate ANZAC day on Friday, 25 April the official AVC opening of proceedings will begin from 11:45am. Delegates will have the opportunity to attend some of Queensland’s iconic beach front ANZAC dawn services to pay tribute to soldiers who have fought and died at war. Bausch & Lomb will join AVC in commemorating the day with an ANZAC brunch lecture session from 10:45am.

The great support of our sponsors makes AVC a success. This year we would like to thank our generous silver sponsors Alcon Vision Care, Bausch & Lomb and Essilor Australia.

We look forward to catching up with you on the famous Gold Coast and in AVC’s Exhibition Hall.
