Spring and Fall Congress Sponsorship Opportunities

With an average attendance of over 400 optometrists from across the state and beyond, NCOS Spring and Fall Congress sponsorships are a great way for companies to gain visibility! All sponsors will be recognized in the society's onsite guide, mobile app, conference website and from the podium at general session, along with other benefits listed in each description below.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, contact Christy Santacana at (919) 977-6964 or [email protected]

Sponsorship opportunities are not available to any group that employs NCOS members and could be considered to be a competitor to the general NCOS membership.
