On the eve of SRC in May Provision attracted over 400 people to a preferred supplier trade event at the Melbourne Aquarium.
It was a fantastic occasion and a great opportunity for Provision preferred suppliers, members and their families to socialise, network and find out about the latest products and initiatives. The night was an enormous success for suppliers with numerous practice owners placing new orders outside their standard ranges.
Provision timed the event to take advantage of the many interstate and regional members in Melbourne over the SRC weekend. Whilst the event was complimentary for members and suppliers, a substantial sum of money was raised for Optometry Giving Sight through generous donations from attendees.
Feedback from both members and suppliers about the night has been exceptional.
Cam Battaglia, Provision CEO said: “With the recent restructuring of membership programs, the overall feeling amongst our members is very positive and they are excited, as we are, about the initiatives and direction of the group.”
Provision preferred suppliers are: Allso Eyewear, Bausch & Lomb, Bluroptix, Coopervision, Essilor, European Eyewear, Eyes Right, General Optical, Healy, Hoya, Jack Chapman, L’Amy, Maui Jim, Mimo, Modstyle, Mondottica, Optical Products, Optique Line, Pelure, Rimoptics and Sunshades.
