AIO and BABO Conferences 2019

About this Event

We are really excited to take the AIO Conference to Bristol this year, and the Marriott City Centre venue offers great facilities and is well located for all the attractions that Bristol has to offer. We are delighted once again to be co-locating with BABO in 2019, and our two Conferences will be more closely integrated to allow delegates to attend lecture sessions which form part of either event. With a number of practitioners being members of both AIO and BABO it makes sense to optimise what the two conferences have to offer. The main lecture programme will include presentations on the positive aspects of blue light, the pioneering work on Artificial Intelligence at Moorfields Eye Hospital, specialist sessions on retinal disease and the latest developments in cataract treatment and specialist lenses.

The usual comprehensive CET programme will be on offer, including a number of discussion workshops, and once again there will be a special student event as well as an AIO Practice Support Network aspiring Independents programme. A particular feature will be a Panel Session on Saturday afternoon with representatives from AOP, The College, FODO, ABDO, LOCSU, BCLA, BABO, and of course AIO taking part. The subject is the future of Independent Practice, and we expect there to be some interesting and provocative views expressed. Please don’t miss the chance to come and participate in this session as it will be extremely interactive using the latest technology!.

The social programme takes in some of the best that Bristol has to offer, including a guided tour around Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s wonder ship SS Great Britain, a visit to Aerospace Bristol where the last Concorde is on display and an atmospheric tour of Bristol Cathedral. The Gathering Dinner on Friday will be held in the lovely surrounds of the Conservatory at the Conference venue, and the Gala Dinner will be held on Saturday evening in the splendid Palm Court in the sister hotel, the Bristol Marriott Royal.

The 2019 Conference will feature the largest exhibition ever at an AIO event and will of course include a number of BABO exhibitors offering a wide breadth of products and services with suppliers spanning the world of optics.We can promise delegates a great experience in Bristol and we strongly encourage you to come along. bookings made before the end of July will automatically enter you into a draw for a magnum of Champagne (the good stuff!) to be presented at the Conference
