Vision UK 2013 conference announced

13 December 2012

The Vision UK conference will be back for its fifth year in 2013, and will be held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London on Tuesday 11 June.

Vision UK 2013, the leading eye health and sight loss sector conference, will focus on the theme ‘‘Progress through partnership’’ and will feature the launch of the refreshed UK Vision Strategy. The one-day conference will include a series of workshops where delegates will have the opportunity to provide their views on how to implement the Strategy across the UK and hear from experts in the public health and eye care sectors.

The conference is aimed at a wide audience including health and social care professionals, members of health and eye care organisations and representatives from the voluntary sector. The 2012 conference attracted over 400 delegates from the health, social care and voluntary sectors and it is anticipated that the 2013 conference will attract increased numbers from the sector who are interested in driving the refreshed Strategy forward.

Anita Lightstone, Programme Director, UK Vision Strategy and Interim Chief Operations Officer, VISION 2020 UK, said: “Those who attend Vision UK 2013 will find out how they can effectively work together to achieve the aims of the UK Vision Strategy in order to make progress in the prevention of avoidable sight loss, as well as improving services for blind and partially sighted people”.

Conference registrations will open in early January and an early bird rate will be offered until 8 April 2013.

Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities are available for the conference. If you are interested, please contact the UK Vision Strategy team on ukvisionstrategy@rnib.org.uk
