Mo.Events to manage CLASS Symposium from 2024


Contamac is pleased to announce that Maureen Trusky of Mo.Events LLC will assume management of CLASS (Contact Lenses of the Americas Specialist Symposium) from 2024.

CLASS was founded on the pillars of high-quality education at accessible prices with simultaneous translation in English and Spanish. The first CLASS Symposium was held in Bogota, Colombia and attracted more than 1,000 delegates. Since its inception in 2018, it has become a widely recognized event, not just in the Latin American market, but globally.

Robert McGregor, Managing Director at Contamac Ltd thanks Carlos Mayoral, Contamac’s Key Account Manager in Latin America, for his founding vision with CLASS, remarking: “Carlos recognized the demand for CLASS and has been instrumental in its success over the past 5 years. My thanks go to Carlos for his passion and drive in delivering top-quality education to the eye care professionals of South America.”

With a wealth of first-hand experience and extensive knowledge in vision care tradeshows, Maureen Trusky and Mo.Events will bring a multifaceted approach to CLASS Symposium in the future. “I had the pleasure of attending CLASS 2022 in Cartegena, and I was immediately struck by the passion and excitement of the presenters, staff, and attendees,” Maureen Trusky, founder of Mo.Events, said. “I am thrilled at the opportunity to expand the reach and relationships of CLASS.”

Mo.Events has appointed Visionary Medical Education (VME) as the educational partner for CLASS 2024 to help bring high-quality COPE-accredited medical education. “We are absolutely thrilled to be the educational partner for CLASS 2024,” said Michael S. Cooper, OD, President of VME, “As an OD myself, I can appreciate the impact specialty contact lenses can have in patients’ lives. My chief goal will be to elevate and innovate the educational experience for attendees from start to finish.”

“Our agreement with Mo.Events will allow CLASS to continue to grow in a market with a mutual understanding on the importance of education and its role in supporting the development of the sector. Leaving it in the capable hands of Maureen and VME, we are excited to see the continued success of the event!” remarks Carlos Mayoral of Contamac.

An exciting program of CLASS Workshops will take place in Latin America throughout 2023. An inaugural CLASS USA event will follow in the Fall of 2024 before returning to Latin America in 2025. “This is an excellent opportunity for a new event to be introduced in the USA, offering COPE-accredited education to Optometrists and Eye Care Professionals,” comments Rob McGregor. “CLASS Symposium has been hugely successful in South America, and I am confident that under the stewardship of Maureen and her educational partner, it will continue to grow into a leading event in the industry calendar!”

More information about CLASS Symposium 2024 will be available from Mo.Events very soon.
