Dear Exhibitor,

1-800-DOCTORS

On behalf of the Planning Committee for the Kiawah Eye meeting, I invite you to participate as an exhibitor at the 2013 symposium, to take place May 31 - June 3, 2013, at the East Beach Conference Center on Kiawah Island in South Carolina. The 2012 meeting boasted the largest attendance in our meeting’s history, bringing together more than 275 ophthalmologists from 31 states, along with international attendees. We also received the most advance registrations for the 2013 meeting, confidently proving we provide a positive meeting experience year after year for a loyal customer base.

The Planning Committee is hard at work building on this momentum to produce our most successful and engaging experience yet — making it the ideal opportunity for you to network one-on-one with your target audience. Here are a few more reasons why attendees rate this one of the top ophthalmology meetings of the year: • Comprehensive agenda that includes cataract surgery, surgical glaucoma, cornea, retina essentials and various Kerry D. Solomon, MD subspecialty topics to advance expertise. Course Director • Fresh clinical insight from prominent specialists on challenges ophthalmologists face daily. • Interactive format featuring debates, roundtables and audience response sessions to foster greater networking between faculty and attendees. • Valuable CME to keep expertise current and earned while spending 4 days on a beautiful barrier island. Our attendees will be on Kiawah Island this spring looking for updates, perspective and information on new products, services and equipment. I encourage you to be there to greet them. Contact AMS Exhibit Management to learn how you can increase your exposure and maximize your impact at Kiawah Eye.
