With only one week left until the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition 2015, we detail why this is an event not to be missed

Next week, the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) 2015 will provide
more than 2,000 industry professionals with access to a multitude of interactive learning and networking opportunities at the Business Design Centre in Islington, central London
With one week left to register, join numerous aesthetic professionals on March 7 and 8 as they learn how to enhance their business and expand their clinical knowledge. At the UK’s first industry conference of the year, attendees can secure vital connections and be the first to discover the latest product and service innovations, with access to more than 100 leading exhibitors. Based on feedback from last year’s delegates, our brand new Conference format, created on an interactive agenda, is unlike anything seen before in the UK’s aesthetic industry. This agenda will provide delegates with engaging, premium content presentations and demonstrations, and up to 50 CPD points are available across all programmes throughout the weekend.


Complementing registration for the free exhibition pass, which includes access to the Business Track, Expert Clinics and Masterclasses, delegates can book main agenda sessions that are relevant to their area of practise or interest – with no obligation to book all four modules. For just £95 a session, including VAT, those opting for this flexible pass will receive discounts with each learning module chosen. Each individual module will demonstrate entire patient journeys, from consultation through to follow-up care, outlining exact patient treatment to achieve optimum outcomes. See leading aesthetic practitioners Dr Arthur Swift, Mr Dalvi Humzah, Dr Tapan Patel and Dr Raj Acquilla present on stage together for the first time in this year’s ‘Face Off’ and ‘Getting into the Zones’ facial injectables sessions. Utilising state of the art technology, these sessions will use multiple screens for optimal viewing and learning, incorporating live treatment demonstrations, anatomy dissection exploration and audience participation. Mr Taimur Shoaib will chair a panel of specialists, including Dr T Vetpillai and Dr Samira Yousefi, during Saturday morning’s session, ‘The Role of FAT’, on weight management and body sculpting. The panel will present and examine case studies on fat reduction treatments, discussing the journey from consultation and treatment to post-procedure advice. Sunday afternoon will see leading dermatologists Dr Christopher Rowland Payne and Dr Stefanie Williams host ‘The Aesthetic Dermatology Clinic’, featuring guidance on differential diagnosis with key insight from dermatologist Dr Daron Seukeran and aesthetic nurses Anna Baker and Lorna Bowes. With this year’s comprehensive Business Track, sponsored by Church Pharmacy, delegates can maximise the opportunity to develop their clinic by attending as a whole practice, in order to learn about the non-clinical aspects of running a successful aesthetics business. Expert Clinic and Masterclass live demonstrations will show how successful practitioners use the best products to achieve top results, providing invaluable advice on techniques and avoiding and managing complications. Topics covered in the Expert Clinics will include advanced injectables, bio-generative skin rejuvenation and non-ablative soft surgery, while the dynamic Masterclasses, led by word-class professionals, will offer invaluable learning and practical advice on specific products. Saturday evening’s Question Time event will be a unique session, hosted by former BBC presenter Peter Sissons, addressing questions asked by you, our readers, to stimulate debate between industry leaders. Panel members will include professional body chairs Dr Paul Charlson and Sharon Bennett, international business specialist Wendy Lewis, Health Education England (HEE) performance and delivery manager Carol Jollie and respected surgeons Mr Dalvi Humzah and Mr Paul Banwell. Within the exhibition, the Merz Aesthetics Live Demonstration Zone will feature a presentation from world-renowned aesthetic surgeon
Dr Arthur Swift as he introduces Belotero+ Volume. Amongst taking part in a range of demonstrations, he will also join a panel of specialists who will share their expertise on safe practice within the industry. 

Valuable experience

Of more than 1,600 attendees last year, 92% said they will return to ACE in 2015. Among the praise received regarding last year’s event, one delegate reflected that, “Talking to the exhibitors helped me because they provided practical material and supplies, and also information I can actually use in my practice.” Headline sponsors, AestheticSource, will be present at the exhibition to provide information for their customers, as well as new delegates. Lorna Bowes, director of AestheticSource, said, “AestheticSource are looking forward to another successful ACE Conference and Exhibition. We love the educational content that the various parts of the programme provide, with a diverse group of speakers stimulating thought and discussion.” The esteemed ACE Steering Committee, led by Mr Dalvi Humzah, will guarantee that the education and speakers featured are of the highest quality, giving attendees the most beneficial and valuable experience possible and making this an essential event on the aesthetics calendar.
