O-Show Closes, ODMA Fair Announced for June 2025

O-Show, the boutique eyewear and eye care event hosted by the Optical Distributors and Manufacturers Association (ODMA) has closed, having attracted over 1,100 visitors. 

Exhibitors were happy with visitor attendance, agreeing that business was strong, even if not entirely consistent across the two-day event. 

With O-Show behind them, ODMA has announced the return of ODMA Fair to the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Sydney’s Darling Harbour precinct from 27 June – 29 June 2025. 

ODMA25 will showcase the latest eyewear, equipment, lenses and optical related offerings and according to ODMA CEO, Amanda Trotman, “will allow us to expand on the O-SHOW offering that has been so popular in recent years”.  

“At O-SHOW, we must limit exhibitors to no more than four booth spaces and while we love the format and boutique feel, it will be great to enable those wanting more space to expand their presence and to allow for a broader range of exhibitors to be invited to participate,” she said.

“All those with services to offer the optical industry will be invited to exhibit – frames, lenses, sunglasses, accessories, equipment, devices, buying groups and business services.”  

ODMA will also expand speaking engagements and is currently seeking both optical and business presenters to address key areas of interest including eye care, practice management, dispensing, retailing or business topics. 

“We feel this approach to presentation content, which complements and runs in harmony with a major products and services trade fair, will set this event apart, especially given there is already a broad range of CPD focussed events on offer for optometry professionals, whether that be live local events or virtually,” said Ms Trotman.  

“An event taking place at the end of financial year should also assist those wanting to invest in larger orders, as it provides for making purchases within the current or following financial year.” 

Ms Trotman said the event “will be one that welcomes everyone involved in an optical practice – optometrists, dispensers, front desk, practice managers and business management”.
