OSHOW2018, the boutique event for the optical industry, will run from 14–15 July 2018 in Melbourne.
Taking place at Peninsula at Docklands, OSHOW2018 has been timed to coincide with the latest frame and sunglass releases presented from MIDO and the US. The latest offerings for the industry will be presented in a funky environment providing a relaxed opportunity to network and enjoy the unique ambience.
“O-Show is a non CPD event with the emphasis on hands on demonstrations, and the opportunity to compare and contrast new products and equipment,” said Robert Sparkes, Chairman of ODMA.
For the first time, ODMA will organise the event in-house and Finola Carey, CEO of ODMA, has welcomed the opportunity. With a background steeped in optical industry events including ODMAFAIR, she said she is looking forward to developing this new business event to the next level with trend leading features and experiences.
In conjunction with O- Show, ODMA will support new scholarships for the industry as well as providing funding support for Optometry Giving Sight.
A Weekend Away
For interstate and regional visitors wishing to take advantage of a weekend away, 14 -15 July is the perfect weekend to take advantage of Melbourne’s sporting and culture events. With the AFL football season in full swing, Sydneysiders even have the opportunity to watch the Swans on Sunday afternoon at Etihad after a few hours browsing the show. Regarded as the cultural centre of Australia, there are also some terrific theatre productions happening in Melbourne at the same time.
