On June 20, Easyfairs, the company behind CCR and the Aesthetics Media portfolio, hosted an exclusive event for press, key opinion leaders and exhibitors to learn about more about what to expect from CCR 2019.
The event was hosted at luxury gym, The Clock in Marylebone, and guests were welcomed with drinks and delicious canapés.
Chairman of the CCR advisory board Norman Waterhouse welcomed those in attendance before it was announced that consumer journalist Francesca White, who is responsible for producing Tatler’s Cosmetic Surgery Guide, would become the event’s official press ambassador.
White said, “I am very privileged to be working with the team for this event. At Tatler we write about non-surgical and surgical procedures and it’s not just because our readers want to know about the practitioners, the treatments and the modalities, it’s because we as a publication provide a very holistic approach to overall wellbeing. In aesthetics, that is absolutely the case too and combining modalities is how some of the best practitioners are providing transformative results.”
Following this, CCR’s event manager Courtney Baldwin outlined what is new for this year’s conference, sharing topics that are to be covered, including PRP for hair loss, vaginal rejuvenation and an overview of full-body injectables.
Both the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) conference and the International Society of Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) conference, which run alongside CCR, are also confirmed for 2019, and will be covering male plastic surgery, female genital surgery, body contouring, practice management and rhinoplasty. For the first time, ISAPS will also be introducing non-surgical treatments into its agenda.
Baldwin also welcomed the Aesthetics Media team, of whom were in attendance, and reiterated to guests what the acquisition will mean for the industry going forward. She said, “Easyfairs are now the leading provider in the UK for the aesthetics industry and we can now offer our customers a phenomenal breadth of products and services. Everyone will benefit from this new acquisition.”
Chloé Gronow, editor and communications manager at Aesthetics Media commented, “It has been a fantastic event! It has also been great to interact with key opinion leaders and exhibitors with our new team and we are very excited about what the opportunities the future holds for this growing specialty.”
