Spring Congress Exhibitor Information

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting state and federal guidelines restricting large gatherings, the 2020 Spring Congress scheduled for June 12-14 in Myrtle Beach, SC will no longer be held as originally planned.

Instead, we will be holding a Virtual Spring Congress along with a Virtual Exhibit Hall to showcase our valued partners and exhibitors. The virtual exhibit hall will be open for a full month, and will be open to ALL NCOS members, along with registered conference attendees, to reach the largest audience.

Why Exhibit?

  • Excellent opportunity to meet face-to-face with current and prospective clients
  • An average of nearly 400 optometrists from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and many other states attend
  • Over 6.5 hours of unopposed exhibit time with functions held in the exhibit hall to drive traffic
  • Location! Location! Location! Spring Congress takes place right on the beach at the Embassy Suites Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach, SC


Friday, June 12, 2020 – 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM
The Opening Reception and Family Fun Night takes place in the exhibit hall during this time. All Spring Congress attendees along with their families are welcome. Highlights include food, drinks, and plenty of activities for the kids including face painting, caricature artists, and balloon twisting stilt walkers. This event provides a significant amount of traffic in a relaxed atmosphere.

Saturday, June 13, 2020 – 7:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Unopposed exhibit time (all functions take place in the exhibit hall):
7:00 AM - 8:00 AM - breakfast
10:00 AM - 10:30 AM - ice cream break
11:30 AM - 1:45 PM - lunch buffet

Booth Registration and Placement:

Registration per booth (6' x 10') includes three name badges, company identification sign, one draped table, pleated skirt on three sides, two chairs, company name in the program, and functions in the exhibit hall.

Each exhibiting company can select their top three booth choices based on the exhibit hall floor plan. NCOS will make every effort to place you at one of your top choices. Booth assignments are given on a first come, first served basis, after the Partners are placed. NCOS will make every effort to keep competing companies away from each other.
