Australian Vision Convention remains committed to delivering COVID-safe events. Our main priority is the safety of all delegates, speakers, exhibitors and staff.
Why is there a limited release of face to face registrations?
Currently, there is a limited number of face to face registrations available. This is due to the current event restriction which only permits one person per 4sqm at an event.
How will virtual delegates access AVC 2021?
Virtual delegates will be emailed a login two weeks prior to AVC 2021. This will give you access a personal login to our AVC platform.
How will AVC assist delegates in completing their CPD portfolio?
For Australian optometrists, there has been a change in CPD requirements effective as of 1 December 2020. The AVC 2021 clinical program has been uniquely designed to offer delegates up to 30 hours of CPD to meet the annual requirement.
What is the Cancellation Policy for registrations?
What is on-demand?
On-demand is simply the recordings of sessions after the event. At AVC 2021, we will be releasing ALL sessions on-demand for 4 months following the conference. On-demand will be available through the same platform as the live stream.
How will CPD hours be allocated?
All CPD hours attendance will be tracked through both attendance options. Face to face delegates will be required to sign in on arrival and virtual delegates attendance will be tracked through the platform.
Will there be optional assessment at AVC 2021?
No, there will not be any optional assessment to complete at AVC 2021. With the changes in CPD, AVC has opted for all CPD to be allocated based on attendance only. You will be able to engage with the sessions through live polling and Q&A.
How do I meet my Interactive Hours requirement if I watch all sessions on-demand?
With the CPD changes coming in, there is still a requirement for Optometrists to acrue at least 5 hours in an interactive setting with other practitioners. While this requirement will be met if you attend AVC on the scheduled weekend, those who choose to only view the recordings will not.
