About the event

ODA is thrilled to invite you to the 2025 ODA Gala in Sydney. The ODA Gala is the feature social event of the year and will be running alongside our biennial 2 day dispensing conference

Don your finest and brightest formal attire and come ready to celebrate! This year's Gala theme is "Spectrum Soireé" ~ inspired by the seven colors of visible light.

Being held on the evening of Friday, 7th March 2025 at Circular Quay, the celebratory evening will recognise the achievements of outstanding optical dispensers and commemorate students graduating from the Certificate IV in Optical Dispensing course.

Taking place in the luxurious InterContinental Sydney's Baronia Ballroom ~ 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.

The 2025 evening will play host to the ODA National Excellence Awards and Optical Dispensing Graduation and is a wonderful way to network with optical dispensers, new and old, in a lavish ballroom setting. The presentation of awards will take place before honouring graduating students and enjoying a fun filled evening complete with entertainment, substantial cocktail food, drinks and a photo booth.

Conference delegates, friends, family, suppliers, optometrists, optical dispensers and industry colleagues are all welcome to this event.
