It is with great pleasure that we extend this invitation to you to join us for the 1st International Meeting of Rhinoplasty Societies. This meeting is the first ever-joint symposium hosted by The Rhinoplasty Society (US) and the Rhinoplasty Society of Europe and promises to be the most extraordinary cross-specialty rhinoplasty educational symposium that our field has witnessed.
The two largest rhinoplasty organizations in the world are united for the first time and have assembled 50 of the most respected rhinoplasty surgeon-educators in plastic surgery and facial plastic surgery from all parts of the globe to deliver a spectacular program.
Our organizing committee, representing the two societies, has extensive experience in designing curricula for rhinoplasty symposia worldwide. They are using this experience to design a comprehensive program with the goal in mind to showcase the very best educational material and perspectives of our diverse, faculty - from basic to highly advanced techniques and inclusive of ethnic variations.
The advanced multi-media capabilities of this meeting will provide unparalleled exposure to rhinoplasty techniques through high–quality video and animation. The program will highlight differing opinions and practices, by design, and will encourage lively discussion among the faculty and attendees.
The format of the congress is especially attractive and interactive, as it will be mainly based on video debates between 2 or 3 surgeons using different techniques to solve one aspect of primary or secondary rhinoplasty. Short presentations of maximum 5 minutes, exclusively or mainly video, will illustrate the technique that each of the speakers uses for each particular subject. A 10-minutes discussion by the faculty members will close each video debate.
For those who are interested in rhinoplasty at any stage of their careers or experience, this event will be an opportunity not likely to be matched in years to come. Regardless of the location or venue, the pure educational value of the experience alone would make this event one not to miss. However, this far-reaching effort will take place in Versailles, France a site with prestige perfectly matching that of the meeting’s content.
We are encouraging attendees to make this trip a unique experience to be shared, and we have arranged a mag- nificent social program to help accomplish this. The attendees and faculty will enjoy events in the grand Palace of Versailles, excursions to the renowned museums of Paris, cooking and wine tasting courses in the heart of the cu- linary world, and shopping in the renowned boutiques of the fashion capital.
The potential of this event has ignited enthusiasm among all of the faculty and planners. We are hopeful that you will share in our excitement, and that you will plan to join us for this memorable event.
Mark your calendars: the grandest spectacle of rhinoplasty education will take place in Versailles, 8-10 September 2016.
