SMC Conference & Function Centre
66 Goulburn Street, Sydney, Australia

The Optical Society has partnered with a number of hotel properties, all of which are a few short blocks away from the SMC Conference & Function Centre, host facility of the conference.

Sydney is Australia's meeting place and one of the world's top 20 destinations for conferences and professional meetings. And, for good reason. The city offers globally recognised competitive strengths in key industry sectors, world-leading universities and research institutes, and is home to a highly educated workforce and a growing base of local talent that make it the perfect place to create lasting outcomes and contribute to a brighter global future.

Sydney's relaxed outdoor lifestyle sits comfortably alongside an edgy cosmopolitanism that gives rise to a thriving arts, music, theatre, sports and dining culture, and a year-round calendar of festivals and celebrations for literally everyone to enjoy – most at little or no cost!
