On behalf of the organizing committee,
it is my pleasure to invite you and your colleague to attend the
17th Asia Pacific Optometric Congress (APOC), which
will be held in Hong Kong SAR, on 5th to 7th November
This Congress is jointly hosted by the Asia Pacific Council of Optometry (APCO), the Hong Kong Society of Professional Optometrists, the Zhongshan Ophthalmic Centre, Sun Yat-sen University, China and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
For the 1st day programme,
a joint opening with the 17th APOC cum the 7th Hong
Kong Optometric Conference (HKOC) will be held at the Hong Kong
Convention and Exhibition Centre. This will be the first time that
APCO will act as a co-organizer with the Hong Kong Trade Development
Council and the Hong Kong Optometric Association to collaborate
on these two optometric events. Delegates will have the opportunity
to visit the HKTDC Hong Kong Optical Fair which will be held in
the same venue as well.
The 17th APOC will consist
of three day of invited lectures, scientific paper sessions and
industrial sessions. The Gala Dinner will be held on 5th November
at the hotel of the Harbour Plaza Metropolis where you can enjoy
the magnificent harbour view of Hong Kong.
Please take this opportunity to interact, contribute, learn and most of all have fun with your colleagues from around the world. Whether you have attended in the past (at Goa, India in 2007 or Tokyo, Japan in 2005), or you are a new delegate, you can be assured of an interesting and varied Congress program.
I look forward to welcoming you to Hong Kong in November.
