Professional Development / Events

Optometry Queensland and Northern Territory holds a number of events annually. 

The Divisions signature professional development event is Australian Vision Convention which is held on the weekend after Easter each year.  This event attracts optometrist delegates from throughout Australia and New Zealand.  Forming an integral part of this event is an exhibition hall incorporating many facets of the optometric profession.

Annually in October the smaller, more intimate professional development event, North Queensland Vision, is held in the Cairns region.  This event has become well known for its relaxed atmosphere.  Alongside the delegates this event includes a number of exhibiting optometric companies.

The Division's employment expo showcases employers and positions available to final year students from the Queensland University of Technology.  This function is generally held annually during the first half of the calendar year.

In November each year the Division celebrates the past twelve months with VISIONaries: past, present & future awards evening.  This event has recently been transformed into a fashionable cocktail event and includes the induction of graduating optometry students along with the presentation of a number of prestigious awards to members.
