For those of you wanting to end 2020 by sinking your teeth into some education and content, this is for you. One of the year’s most highly anticipated aesthetic events returns this month – reimagined for a virtual audience. Next weekend, Saturday 28 – Sunday 29 November, The Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) are excited to present The Non-Surgical Symposium 2.0 – Reimagined: a virtual, innovative reimagining of the traditional Non-Surgical Symposium live event.

Over the past several months, the NSS team have been rigorously trialling and testing their virtual conference technology to ensure a sophisticated virtual experience so that, while we may not be able to enjoy large-scale in-person conferences just yet, we can enjoy as close as it gets! You won’t miss out on the networking component here either, as day one of the program includes a networking drinks event at the day’s close. You also won’t miss out on chatting with brands and exhibitors, with the inclusion of a virtual exhibition.

As always, NSS brings us a program that is absolutely brimming with the very latest topics and some of the industry’s best leaders and pioneers in their fields, including speakers from across the globe. You”l need to choose your sessions wisely – there will be two parallel streams to choose from across both days, totalling 32 hours of pure content from Australian and international names across this year’s lineup. Renowned international guests for 2020 include Dr Nabila Azib, Dr Ashish Bhatia, and Dr Michael Weiner just to name a few.
