National CEO Genevieve Quilty attended, with state organisation CEOs Andrew McKinnon (Optometry NSW/ACT), Pete Haydon (Optometry Victoria), Tony Martella (Optometry WA) and retiring CEO Geoff Squibb (Optometry Tasmania).

The fifth Specsavers conference was held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on 10-11 September. Specsavers’ professional services team hosted an event to welcome guests at the Gallery of Modern Art.

The Saturday conference program included a pathology management stream and a paediatrics stream. All speakers in the Sunday full-day program were Fellows of RANZCO.

The exhibition in which Optometry Australia had a stand was held only on Sunday.
