What a spectacular 2 days catching up with old friends, new friends and welcoming new members. The OShow22 will forever be ODA's inaugural tradeshow, and we want to say a massive THANK YOU to each and every one of you who not only attended OShow22, but also purposefully stopped by our stand and introduced yourselves.
It is an absolute highlight of this journey so far for us, to be able to not only meet, but chat with our ever-growing member base and connect with you, hear about your studies or your latest job opportunities, and most importantly FEEL your passion for the optical industry and share in that enthusiasm together.
This amazing ODA network of like-minded dispensers is increasing every week, exemplified at OShow22 with an exceptional on-the-spot membership sign up response across the two days. Our CEO April Petrusma, starred on the Spotlight Stage sharing her insight, passion and drive for voluntary CPD on both Friday and Saturday, as did one of our ODA Advisory Board Members Emanuela De Dona Zeccone, who presented on three different eyewear fashion topics to the OShow22 audience. Our fortune cookies were the talk of the town and our merch quite literally walked out the door faster than you can say ODA! (We are restocking right now - our extremely popular Snellen Chart earrings have just been re-released. Grab yours now before they sell out 'AGAIN!').
We are busily putting the finishing touches on some ODA face to face events we have been organising across the country - yes Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, we have you in our sights for 2022. (With Hobart and Adelaide not far behind for 2023). So keep your eyes peeled on our upcoming events page and RSVP to our monthly Webinar Wednesdays too. The next one is happening on Wed, 29th June at 7pm.
