About the event

Optical Dispensers Australia (ODA) and The International Opticians Association  (IOA) dually invite you to the ‘2025 ODA International Conference’ in SYDNEY.  

ODA is thrilled to be collaborating with the IOA for our  biennial two-day dispenser conference held in Sydney,  on March 7th – 8th, 2025. 

Due to popular demand and given the success of our 2023 conference in Sydney, we have created a new two-day program featuring international guest speakers, complimented by a generous, dedicated exhibitor space. On the evening of March 7th, our annual celebratory ODA Gala evening will take place, offering the industry a glamorous evening to network and celebrate all things optical dispensing.  

Taking place in the luxurious InterContinental Sydney where heritage, wonder and contemporary flair collide, the venue is renowned as one of the city’s prized icons. Set within the beautifully restored Treasury Building of 1851, and centrally positioned in the heart of Circular Quay, the event is sure to attract guests from across Australia and beyond. During the breaks within the exhibitor areas, delegates will have ample opportunity to optimise their interactions with suppliers over complimentary refreshments. 

*NB: ODA CPD Points and ODOB Accreditied CPD Points for NZ Dispensing Opticians will be available at the conference.

The Friday evening Gala will host the ODA National Excellence Awards and Certificate IV in Optical Dispensing Graduation ceremony, providing another wonderful way to network with dispensers, new and old, in the spectacular setting of Circular Quay. The presentation of awards will take place before honouring graduating students by enjoying a fun filled evening complete with food, drinks, entertainment, and a photo booth. ODA’s last Sydney Gala saw a record number of 246 guests attend, a true testament to the important role dispensers play within the industry.
