Be Seen. Be Found. Become an Exhibitor!

On the Exhibit Hall Marketplace floor, exhibitors will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with optometric professionals that are moving their practice and the Optometric Industry forward. The GWCO Congress’ non-compete hours enable exhibitors to have the undivided attention of attendees during the dedicated Exhibit Hall Marketplace hours, as well as allow exhibitors the opportunity to participate in all scheduled events alongside attendees.
