The exhibition that runs alongside the iDay and National Eyecare Group joint conference sold out within weeks of its launch. The companies recently announced that for 2018 the combined event would take a 3 event roadshow format covering the north, midlands and south of England.
The 3 events will start on in Wembley on Monday 22ndOctober stopping off at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on Monday 29thOctober, before finishing in Bolton on Tuesday 30thOctober.
Commenting on the news, PTR Director Nick Atkins said, “I have been blown away by the level of support we’ve had from the industry to sponsor and exhibit at this years series of events. It seems that this new format has struck a cord with suppliers focussed on the independent sector. Certainly I couldn’t have predicted the desire for companies to be sponsors, for which delegates should be very grateful as this will keep ticket prices down.”
The main sponsors for the event include Alcon, CooperVision, Heidelberg Engineering and UltraVision.
The meetings will start at 13:00 and run through until 20:30 in an attempt to make attendance easier with the potential to take less time out of the practice.
