We are delighted to announce that this year the APAN Aesthetics Conference is expanding.  We are changing our format to provide you with amazing additions to our programme giving you extra value. The event will still run over one day, but the lecture structure will expand from Six Lectures to 16 Lectures.


What to expect

This year we will also be launching an additional 6-10 lectures, 15-MINUTES each.  This segment will focus on PROBLEM-SOLVING SOLUTIONS providing you with the latest strategies and technologies for achieving leading treatment outcomes and results.

We believe the new format will provide you with a stronger two-pronged approach:

  • Global education on the latest scientific advances
  • Practical solutions you can immediately implement

These two segments will deliver an excellent balance of the very latest in education, as well as techniques and technologies for practical solutions to some of the more challenging problems you encounter in your practice.

Meet some of the industry’s leading experts in a vibrant and dynamic event and share a day of learning and fun with other like-minded professionals.

There will also be some additional inspirational features that will make your experience even more memorable, but we are keeping these as a surprise.

Join us for an incredible day of leading education, fun, and a banquet lunch like you have never seen before.

Be first to learn the latest developments. We know this year will be an exciting and memorable experience for you. We can’t wait to share it with you.
