IDOC Returns to Orlando for National Conference: The Connection 2023

IDOC issues call for speakers to join The Connection 2023 Roster.




(PRESS RELEASE) NORWALK, CT — Save the date for the return of IDOC‘s annual national conference, The Connection, to be held in Orlando, FL on February 16-19, 2023.

The announcement comes just a few months after IDOC hosted its largest event to date at The Connection 2022, a record-breaking gathering of more than 800 attendees including IDOC members, sponsor representatives, and other industry professionals from across the country. IDOC is pleased to return to Orlando in 2023 for three intensive days of business management curriculums, COPE-approved clinical education, staff training, and high-profile guest speakers.

“We were thrilled to see such an incredible turnout and energy at The Connection 2022,” said Dave Brown, President & CEO of IDOC. “We can’t wait to gather again next year and empower the independent optometry community at The Connection 2023. It is our privilege and delight to continue to provide our members with the dynamic learning and networking opportunities they’ve come to love from IDOC.”

IDOC’s recent launch of turnkey practice management services for the OD community received a tremendous response at The Connection 2022 and in the months that followed, with many early adopters partnering with IDOC to lighten their workload and gain back their time. IDOC will continue to expand service offerings, helping alleviate the business burdens owners face every day, and bring new innovation to next year’s event.

Both IDOC members and non-members are encouraged to bring their whole practice and attend The Connection 2023 as a team, as the event will include a full agenda of employee role-based tracks designed to inform, guide, and inspire IDOC members and hone their focus on the goals and challenges of independent optometry practices.

Headquartered at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld , The Connection 2023 is designed to be a family-friendly event. World-famous theme parks and area attractions are located nearby, and childcare will be provided free of charge to registered attendees.
