Amcon exhibits at the American Academy of Optometry Show

AAO in SeattleLast week Amcon made it’s first appearance as an exhibitor at the American Academy of Optometry (AAO) Show in Seattle, Washington.   The mission of the  American Academy of Optometry is “to promote the art and science of vision care through lifelong learning.”  At the annual meeting, there are over 300 hours of lectures, workshops, symposia and poster presentations.  It’s almost impossible to attend and not learn something!

Because of it’s educational nature, many students were in attendance.  We were able to get several catalogs in the hands of students who need to purchase supplies for optometry school.  For this reason, we offer a 10% discount to students for just about anything in our catalog.  Our hope is that once these students become practitioners, they will think of Amcon for all of their optometric supplies.

In addition to the many students attending the AAO meeting – there were also quite a few international, especially Spanish speaking attendees.  We were grateful to have Diana, our Spanish speaking Amcon sales rep in attendance at the show.

For Amcon, exhibiting at AAO is a great  opportunity to connect with our customers on the West Coast. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth to say hello and stock up on their favorite Amcon supplies.   If we missed you in Seattle – we hope to see you in New York at Vision Expo East.
