NORTH QUEENSLAND VISION
Proudly owned & operated by Optometry Queensland & Northern Territory
Welcome to North Queensland Vision
North Queensland Vision (NQV) is a boutique conference bringing together our regional optometry professionals each year in beautiful North Queensland.
Join us at Cairns’ Hilton on 4 - 5 July 2020 for small-scale, group style learning with a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Two days of plenaries and social events are an ideal opportunity to not only build on your professional development with high quality engagement, but to solidify this important community of regionally based members.
With speakers from across Australia, trade displays, and a conference dinner, this annual gathering of minds attracts some of the brightest pioneers in the field. Located at the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and held in a 4-star hotel, it’s easy to see why many of the industry’s practitioners meet here each year.
With the setting tuned to ‘relax’ and the program set to inspire, North Queensland Vision is an ideal way to expand professional networks and explore new ideas in optometry.
