First ODA Mini Conference in Perth - Big Success!

On Sunday we held our inaugural ODA MC in PERTH, which was proudly sponsored by Rodenstock, and O what a day!

We had a full house with 51 guests and listened to the life story of an absolute industry legend (Don Ezekiel ~ Gelflex Creator), got hands on with contact lenses (with Sujan Hong ~ Alcon), learnt about lens coatings & biometric eye modelling (with Mikaela Bartlam ~ Tokai Optical and Nicola Peaper ~ Rodenstock), squirmed in our seats seeing the repercussions of not wearing safety glasses (with Jack Layland ~ Hoya), had a Q&A troubleshooting session (with Neilsen De Souza ~ UWA) and got our competitive streak on to win a pair of Ray-Bans (with Cameron Bourke ~ Luxottica).

The day was possible with the wonderful support from our event sponsors:


Delegates indulged in their goodie bags packed full of treats and merch and got to catch up with old and new friends over the sponsored morning tea and lunch.

To all our speakers, sponsors and partners - THANK YOU for helping us make the event such a roaring success! The energy in the room was out of this world, with many guests taking the time to comment about how excited they were to be in attendance.

The feedback we are 'still' receiving is above and beyond anything we could have hoped for! Here’s just a little taste of the day and what people are saying…

“One of the best run conferences I have been to.”

“An excellent day full of great knowledgeable speakers, worth every minute. I’m so glad I went.”

“I had such a great day Sunday meeting new fellow dispensers and lovely people.”

“Such great speakers and so much knowledge shared.”

We are already receiving requests for information on the next one - at this stage we can say "Something big is coming to Sydney in 2023! Watch this space for a 'SAVE THE DATE' - coming soon."
