SRC 16: Getting Close to Capacity

Organisers of Southern Regional Congress are gearing up for what they expect to be an exciting conference this year, to be held at the Pullman and Mercure Hotel, Albert Park.

“SRC at its new home is going to be a blast,” said Optometry Australia CEO Pete Haydon.

“Already more than 600 delegates have registered, which is tracking very strongly against last year’s numbers at the same stage. With less than four weeks to go, we’re anticipating a bumper, happy crowd.”

Already sold out is the Saturday morning Alcon breakfast, with the Sunday morning breakfast session filling up as well.

Essilor has confirmed sponsorship of the Saturday night dinner, which will be an 80s-themed extravaganza with a live band, fun and prizes. Places are filling fast so dress to impress as your fave 80s icon.

The careers expo on Saturday afternoon will be the “biggest ever this year” said Haydon.

With more than 120 students discussing issues and meeting prospective employers he expects it will sell out quickly.

“We think we’ve got a great and diverse program, lots of high quality points to accrue, and a sensational set of exhibitors and sponsors all ready to engage with delegates in our wonderful new venue,” said Haydon.

At this years SRC you will hear from keynote speakers Dr. Nate Lighthizer and Dr. Jeffry Gerson, as well as Assoc. Prof. Mark Roth, Assoc Prof, Peter Keller, Dr. Laura Downie, Paula Katalinic and more.

The HB Collin Medal will be delivered by Professor Nathan Efron and is entitled, Is Contact Lens Wear Inflammatory?

SRC 2016 will be held at the Pullman and Mercure Hotel, Albert Park from 5 and 6 March.
