Australian Vision Convention is one of the only optometry industry conventions in Australia to offer a program of workshops and lectures customised to you and your professional priorities.

It's with excitement that Optometry Queensland & Northern Territory extends you an invitation to AVC's upcoming convention, focused on the theme of 'Vision Beyond 2020'.

Each year AVC attracts a list of world-class speakers to deliver informative and educational lectures and workshops, assisting you to advance your practice, your patient care, and your knowledge of therapeutic, clinical and equipment developments.


Breakfast seminars, networking opportunities, and CPD points are all part of what makes this flagship event a highlight of the profession's social calendar.  


A wide range of clinical and interactive sessions will be offered over two days, covering our industry's high profile topics. Hosted in one of Australia's most sought after holiday destinations, your professional development can be undertaken in a relaxed setting, complete with the annual Australian Vision Convention Dinner.


Complimentary child minding services and a stunning beachside location make AVC a unique professional development opportunity that the whole family can enjoy.
