2024 ODA Gala Mega Weekend Announced

ODA is thrilled to announce tickets are on sale for The 2024 ODA Gala in Melbourne. 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 iconic Melbourne Town Hall on Swanston Street, the magnificent heritage building and historical treasure in the heart of the city is a world-class event venue. Defined by striking monumental architecture and located right in the centre of the CBD, the Gala is sure to attract guests from all over the country.

The 2024 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 the lavish setting of Swanston Hall.

The event is designed to acknowledge the accomplishments of optical dispensers in Australia. The presentation of awards will take place before honouring graduating students and enjoying a fun filled evening complete with a silent auction and entertainment to raise funds towards an aid trip to Fiji, live band, cocktail food, drinks, city lights and a photo booth.

Whist in Melbourne, visitors can also enjoy a Friday lab tour to CR Labs - Australia’s market leading independent optical lens manufacturer. In collaboration with ODA, CR Labs is offering ODA Members complimentary transport from Melbourne CBD to their lab in Dandenong South. Transfers, morning tea and a hands on hand edging class are included in the tour.
