The Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) has been postponed until May 28 and 29, with the prestigious Aesthetics Awards now taking place following the second day of the conference on May 29.
To deliver an event where the entire medical aesthetics specialty can reunite in the safest and most successful possible way, and to celebrate their achievements after a tough year, the company behind ACE and the Aesthetics Awards Easyfairs, decided to postpone both events.
Alison Willis, divisional director of Easyfairs’ aesthetics portfolio, said, “Following the heartening news of the Prime Minister’s recent announcement regarding the reopening of the events sector, the progression of rapid testing and multiple effective vaccine trials, we are excited to welcome back our exhibitors, sponsors, delegates and partners. However, with capacity restrictions in place until April, to reunite as many medical professionals as possible safely and successfully, we have decided to postpone a further two months. Although Easyfairs remains confident that they could deliver a safe event to extremely high standards, they want to deliver ACE and the Aesthetics Awards to the best possible standard.”
Currently, the capacity limits in place only allow 1,000 people within a venue space indoors at any one time, or 50% capacity, whichever is lower. With 2,000 delegates attending ACE each year, the organisers wanted to give as many delegates as possible the chance to come together to learn and network face-to-face.
Willis added, “To continue to provide top education for our delegates, we have been working with manufacturers and suppliers to offer a series of exclusive virtual takeovers, which will launch in January 2021. The takeovers will include educational webinars, social media takeovers and editorial coverage allowing practitioners to dip in and out of content. Clinicians can learn from brands and hear from their KOLs, to get a real feel for a company’s ethos and continue their education in the lead up to conferences and events.”
