About the AACO Annual Conference

In our 7th year of the AACO Annual Conference, we're starting a new tradition-AACO in the Springtime! We understand how challenging it is to decide which conference to attend in a crowded field of related events, so to ease your stress, we've moved the Conference to the Spring. This ensures your consideration to attend our event. The Conference is designed to serve the community of corporate-affiliated optometrists and those entities that provide technical collaboration and support. AACO focuses on offering learning and networking opportunities for corporate affiliated practitioners so that you may give the highest quality patient care. Join us for the celebration in Nashville, TN.

Our conference sessions and exhibits give our attendees a mix of topics and high-quality educational experiences.

In previous years, the Conference was named Energeyes National Annual Conference, as a nod to the early years in AACO's history. Today, as the AACO Annual Conference, we devote our time to empowering our attendees with quality learning and resources so they can provide optimal patient care. Providing mode-specific CE for corporate affiliated optometrists enhances the quality of eye care professional education. The inclusive AACO community is creating a platform for best practice guidance. AACO is driving technical and professional learning for corporate affiliated Optometrists in the U.S.A. and Canada.

As always, we promise expert keynote speakers, program categories of interest, and engaging workshops. Our exhibitors will offer technical demonstrations and detailed information on innovative equipment and services to bring your work setting to a new level. 

JOIN US IN OUR COMMITMENT TO MOVE CORPORATE AFFILIATED OPTOMETRY TO THE NEXT LEVEL. WE LOOK FORWARD TO CONNECTING AND CELEBRATING WITH YOU IN NASHVILLE, TN, 2020.
