Optometry's Meeeting is the official annual meeting of the American Optometric Association and the American Optometric Student Association.
Our Exhibit Hall has been around for more than a century and is well-known in the industry. You should exhibit at Optometry's Meeting® if your business requires ophthalmic professionals to succeed. The American Optometric Association has more than 36,000 members who are always looking for the latest and greatest products and services for their practice and patients. Eighty-seven percent of our professional attendees are self-employed doctors. Seventy-seven percent of our professional attendees report their practices’ total revenue at $350,000 to more than $1 million. More decision-makers (specifically more practicing ODs) attend Optometry’s Meeting® than any other optometric meeting worldwide. We are THE national meeting for optometry!
We provide optometric professionals with the latest and greatest technologies and solutions that optometry has to offer with our wide-range of exhibitors. Our attendees know when they walk onto our floor they can expect to find everything they need to succeed: like how to become a paperless practice, the latest pharmaceutical research, the latest trends in contract lenses and frames, and the newest office equipment and services available. Furthermore, as the national association of optometry, we are also able to provide our patrons with the latest and greatest news on Capitol Hill, with updates on health care reform and health initiatives that effect optometry, the way they practice, and their patients every day.
