The landmark Greyville Racecourse in Durban, South Africa provided a perfect setting for an optical conference in March. The event was planned and hosted by one of CooperVision’s partners, Optical Alliance, and welcomed more than 90 eye care professionals from throughout the region.
“Each year, this event offers a prime opportunity for practitioners and frontline managers to interact with key suppliers, review new and existing products, and generate valuable business leads,” said event organizer Marietjie Kriel.
CooperVision and other optical suppliers delivered brief presentations about their companies, displayed their products, and answered questions from conference attendees.
Sales representative Anton du Preez highlighted CooperVision’s excellent customer service and discussed growth in the daily disposable contact lens market with focus on CooperVision’s MyDay® and clariti® 1 day silicone hydrogel products.
The conference ended on a high note with an awards ceremony and a few lucky winners receiving prizes donated by individual suppliers.
“Coopervision was well represented and we received great feedback on both our products and customer service,” Anton said. “It was a great opportunity to interact with our customers to understand their individual needs and vision for their practices. We look forward to participating again next year.”
