SNAPPtobertfest Is Going to Rock Your October

From the SNAPP Board

virtual conference starts Thursday and continues all month long

Learning that we were going to need to switch from a traditional meeting format to a virtual meeting format gave us a moment’s pause—and then your SNAPP board went into action. What we developed is an accessible, informative and enjoyable conference that spreads out the presentations and fun events over a series of evenings all month long.

From an opening ceremony with CooperVision to a closing ceremony where Bausch + Lomb INFUSE will be introduced to us, CE sessions, breakout sessions and social time done virtually, we will have it all. Plus, it’s in bite-sized presentations that enable you to get the best of both worlds: attend to your business by day and join us in the evenings.

Below are some of the highlights of the month-long offerings. Register here now.

What’s Different About a SNAPP Virtual Event?

While attendees to various webinars are familiar with CE in a virtual format, SNAPPtoberfest is providing more interactive sessions as well. The sponsor-led roundtable breakout sessions, for example, bring a new wrinkle to what we used to call “Breakout Sessions.” Throughout the month, you’ll have opportunities to meet, virtually, and in small groups with representatives of SNAPP sponsor-partners. We expect these sessions will be highly interactive and informative. It’s first come-first served so register right away and receive one of a limited number of $150 SNAPP Attendance Stipends.

The first ever SNAPP Social will feature fun discussions and mini- zoom meetings… Much like SNAPP’s famous Meet Fellow Operators events we’ve all enjoyed so much. Mark your calendar so you don’t miss it!

And there will be chances to win attendance stipends throughout. Check updates to the agenda here.

Thanks to the Sponsors

As with live events, the gracious support of our sponsors makes it all possible. The SNAPP board thanks the 2020 SNAPPtoberfest meeting sponsors.
