Experts Keep an Eagle Eye on Brisbane in 2024

In June 2024 the focus will be on global eye health care at the recently confirmed Congress of the International Orthoptic Association (IOA) to be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC). The IOA Congress – currently considered to be the most important orthoptic meeting in the world, promises to be a catalyst for driving improvements in eye health care across Australia and the Asia Pacific Region and is expected to be attended by 23 IOA membership countries from around the world.

On behalf of the host organisation, Orthoptics Australia, President, Marion Rivers said: “The Congress will provide us with the opportunity to showcase the work of our Australian orthoptists and global colleagues as well as demonstrate the strength and importance of this niche field in Queensland where there is a high demand for qualified professionals precipitating an increase in higher education and research in the sector.”

The team at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre worked closely with the local national association, Orthoptics Australia, in collaboration with Tourism and Events Queensland and Brisbane Marketing to secure the conference for Queensland and Brisbane.
