This year at Vision Expo East, Costa will be offering eyecare professionals (ECPs) an opportunity to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to join the OCEARCH team on their boat in New York this August.

All VEE attendees can also meet Founding Chairman and Expedition Leader Chris Fischer of OCEARCH at the Costa promotional booth (#2400) during a booth happy hour on both March 31 and April 1 from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.

The trip is offered in connection with Costa’s partnership with OCEARCH, a group of explorers and scientists dedicated to generating previously unattainable data on the movement, biology and health of sharks. ECPs can stop by the Costa booth at any time during VEE to have their badges scanned to be entered for a chance to win the trip, which occurs anytime from August 4 to 25, 2017. The sweepstakes prize includes air transportation, $500 spending money, ground transportation to/from the airport/hotel and a two-night hotel stay.

Fischer will be on hand at the Costa booth happy hour to meet and greet attendees and will talk about shark science and the positive impact begin made on our ocean’s ecosystem. The happy hour will feature drinks, appetizers and live music.

“We are very excited to be able to offer ECPs this truly unique opportunity to join Chris Fischer and the OCEARCH team in New York. Environmental protection—especially for our seas—is a big focus for Costa,” says Terri Ossi Hannah, Senior Marketing Manager at Costa. “Allowing people to meet Chris is a great way for the public to see the importance of what he does, and what Costa supports, every day.”
