Attendees will have the ability to watch speakers LIVE and view On Demand presentations from the comfort and safety of their own home, at whatever pace works for them. A full day of virtual workshops on Thursday October 15th will be followed by 3 days of LIVE programming showcasing speakers in both aesthetic and surgical track days.


Is the virtual meeting taking place on the same dates?
Yes. The virtual meeting will be October 15-18, 2020. Attendees will have the ability to watch LIVE speaker presentations as well as view an On Demand library of pre-recorded speaker presentations. Attendees will be able to receive CEU credits for the sessions they attend.
