We'll have the full speaker list and topics up here by monday, but until then just know that Zeiss has lined up a bunch of fan-favorites for the show -- Aaron Lech (@ae.lech), Paul Chous, April Jasper, etc, etc...

Equally important we'll have live chat rooms set up, so members can speak user-to-user about the lectures and equipment. It should be a fun time! Thanks to Zeiss for giving us a shot hosting this event!

Yeah my apologies for not getting the full speaker list/agenda up yet, it is being finalized. But I figured people would want to learn about the conference even if the web site isn't totally complete yet! We have never done anything like this with industry before. I am hopeful that lots of Zeiss "power users" will show up, and participate in the chat room (aka "the lobby bar" :) ) and share tips.

Kudos to Zeiss Meditec for having the confidence to work with Adam using his creative skills to produce what appears to be something special. Zeiss equipment users will have the ability to chat with colleagues as well as Zeiss folks to answer questions and solve problems.

From the comfort of your home or your office, there will be education and the ability to visit Zeiss exhibits free of charge. On 7/28 /18 and 7/29/18 you will be able to interact with the speakers as well as visit the Exhibits in real time.

Setting up and manning the virtual exhibit hall costs a fraction of a live show. I hope we can convince Zeiss to pass savings along to you for show purchases that are even greater than at their live Brick and Mortar exhibits.

Welcome to a new approach to OD marketing.

For sure every Zeiss equipment user should meet at the chat room and share stories warts and all.

The quality of the presentations will be up to COPE standards. Because the speakers will be discussing a specific product, there is no COPE approval for the courses. it will be worth your time to attend the courses live on 7/28 and 7/29. The instructors will be standing by to answer your questions in real time.

It you cannot make all the courses they will be available on demand for the month of August.

Procrastinators attention...

The signups have been robust for the Zeiss sponsored free courses and exhibit hall. We may overwhelm the exhibitors with too many ODs crowding the exhibit hall.

Upon Adam's return from vacation, we might have to close the registration for the live shows on 7/28 and 7/29. If interested in learning about the show discounts and take advantage of the savings register today.

Yes I am told they can handle just so many live and do a good job so those who want to come free sign up ASAP
