Exhibitor Participation

WAEPS is currently working on the 2021 Annual Ophthalmology Meeting. We are hoping that it will be an in-person meeting but we will need to follow the State and County guidelines on large gatherings as we get closer to March 2021. If you would like to support WAEPS and our educational efforts, please watch your inbox for our Exhibitor Prospectus in early January 2021.

Thank you for your patience and support during this difficult 2020 year.


Annual Meeting Participant Registration Fees

The cost to participate in each program is based on whether participants are WAEPS physician members or employees of a WAEPS member practice. In order to take advantage of the significant member discounts, the member’s 2021 dues must be paid prior to registration. Some of the programs also have an early-bird registration discount. Check the individual program pages for details.

Reciprocal Society Members

WAEPS has reciprocal arrangements with ophthalmology societies in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and British Columbia. Physicians, providing proof of membership in their respective state and province societies, may register at the Active WAEPS Member rate. Please contact our office for details if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity: [email protected]
