Venue:  Washington State Convention Center

This facility is across the street from the conference center where we’ve held our program for the past several years. 

Join your colleagues for another outstanding program with tracks specifically designed for ophthalmologists, their medical personnel, practice managers and administrative staff.

This year we move to the main facility of the Washington State Convention Center and the entire program will be held on the 6th Floor. We’ll have a spacious exhibitor hall and room for all the various components of our conference.
