Telford to welcome eye specialists in 2020

College of Optometrists' annual congress Optometry Tomorrow will be held at Telford International Centre in 2020.

Telford International Centre will host The College of Optometrists’ annual congress, Optometry Tomorrow in 2020.

Optometry Tomorrow will focus on the very latest developments in clinical care through a programme of lectures, seminars, practical workshops and peer discussion sessions.

Having been held in Birmingham for the past four years, the college was keen to consider a new venue in order to keep its event fresh.

"After a few years in the same venue, we felt it was time to inject something new into this important date in our calendar," said Catherine Bithell, director of member services and communications for The College of Optometrists.

"As our showcase annual conference, AGM and exhibition, it’s important that we hold Optometry Tomorrow in a location and venue that can meet all of our delegate, sponsor and exhibitor needs."

Alison Griffin, managing director for Telford International Centre, added: "As one of the UK’s leading optometric events and a must-attend occasion for all optometrists, we are delighted that the College of Optometrists chose Telford for its 2020 event."

Last month the Palliative Care Congress also confirmed it was heading to Telford in 2020.
