The prestigious Aesthetics Awards will take place on March 13 following the second day of the Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) 2021.
ACE will feature unmissable education and networking opportunities over two days – March 12 and 13 – followed by the glamorous Awards ceremony that will celebrate the achievements of clinics, products, companies and individuals working across the specialty in 2019-2020.
Combining the two, rather than hosting the Awards separately in December, will better support the medical aesthetic specialty through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alison Willis, director of Aesthetics Media as part of Easyfairs, said, “We understand the challenges that companies and clinics will face this year as a result of the pandemic. As such, we have decided to combine ACE and the Aesthetics Awards, holding them at a later date in March, to allow everyone time to get back on their feet, as well as save on travel and accommodation costs.”
She continued, “Along with CCR in October, ACE and the Awards are both extremely valuable events for practitioners’ continued professional development, networking opportunities and, of course, recognition of achievements. It is important we do our very best to bring them to the industry in the safest and most suitable way possible. After a challenging year, it will be brilliant to come together to celebrate everyone’s positive actions throughout this difficult period!”
Entry to the Aesthetics Awards will open on June 1, with 27 categories designed to celebrate everyone involved in the specialty.
Five new categories have been introduced for this year, which include those designed to recognise the surgical side of aesthetics, with trophies handed out for Surgical Product of the Year and Consultant Aesthetic Surgeon of the Year.
In addition, practitioners are encouraged to submit their most impressive case studies for the Best Surgical Result and Best Non-surgical Result categories, while Rising Star of the Year will reward practitioners with less than five years’ experience who’ve made a notable difference to the specialty.
Chloé Gronow, editor and content manager at Aesthetics Media, said, “With the importance of working collaboratively in mind, we want to recognise aesthetic surgeons and the valuable products they use with these exciting new categories. We have also found that more and more practitioners new to aesthetics are achieving excellent results and working hard to uphold high standards. While they may not have the experience to enter our traditional Best Practitioner categories just yet, we want to give them the opportunity to be recognised, which they so deserve. Now, doctors, dentists and nurses with less than five years’ experience can enter Rising Star of the Year, as well as submitting case studies to our results categories, which are open to all.”
