MAKE 2020 YOUR YEAR!

01 Jun 2020

Get the recognition you deserve at the most prestigious awards ceremony in aesthetics

It’s a challenging year for all in the specialty, but we know how much you care for your patients and customers, and believe everything you are doing to continue to support them should be celebrated! If you’re not working at the moment, then many of you may be analysing your business strategy and reflecting on all the fantastic things you’ve achieved in the past year. Why not tell us about them and be rewarded for your efforts in the process?

Winning an Aesthetics Award, or even being shortlisted as a finalist, is a prestigious endorsement of your achievements within the specialism, helping to raise your profile and increase marketing and PR opportunities. It enables you to demonstrate to patients and customers why they should put their trust in you and your brand, and choose you over your competitors.

THE CEREMONY

The Aesthetics Awards will take place following the second day of the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) 2021 – meaning you can dedicate a whole weekend to learning, networking and celebrating! 

The glamorous ceremony will host more than 800 guests, providing another remarkable evening full of entertainment, networking opportunities, and acknowledgement of the hardest working companies and individuals in the field. You could be presented with a Commendation, High Commendation or even the Winner’s trophy in front of hundreds of like-minded peers, before dancing the night away in celebration of making it through the most challenging year medical aesthetics is ever likely to see.
