Aesthetic Holidays 2012
A brief assessment...more
The NETWORK team were highly gratified and motivated by the fact that the advance organization of the event and the performance of the team on the ground received such high recognition by the participants, and also by the fact that, as in previous years, the spirit of collegial exchange and solidarity that is so unique to the NETWORK once again firmly manifested itself.
Despite some difficulties with the hotel, which is once again under new management, this year’s Holidays received an excellent appraisal. The courses were rated to have been of very high quality, as the feedback forms reveal. Much use was made of the opportunities for participants to meet and talk on a personal level, and the accompanying programme was also well attended. We wish to take this opportunity to thank all the participants once more for their involvement, commitment and solidarity with the NETWORK.
Not just the training courses were rated positively by the participants; it also became clear that the network idea is still very much alive and attractive and that the NETWORK holds a special place for many doctors.
Regarding the courses themselves, there is not a great deal to add. One thing that especially pleased us was the highly lively discussion on "The Social Force of Beauty", which was triggered by a lecture given by Dr. Margrit Lettko and was conducted with enormous intensity. Nearly all the participants took an active part in the discussion (German part).
Over the course of the years, the NETWORK has built up wide-ranging contacts and is enjoying increasingly broad support from outside. We would like to express our thanks to the following supporters, who helped to make the programme more attractive:
• The firms of Merz and Galderma, for providing material for some of the courses.
• The firm of Anteis, for introducing its new injection system at an evening presentation, followed by a reception.
• The firm of Cortex, for supporting us over the whole period of the Holidays, especially in the two scar treatment courses.
• The firm of Skinceuticals, a L'Oreal company, for taking care of the after-treatment in the courses and the additional treatments by participants.
• The firm of PremiumMedSwiss, for providing a radio frequency device and a cooling device for use in the courses.
We were able to gather many new ideas for next year’s 2013 Holidays event. We will inform you in good time of the dates of the next Aesthetic Holidays.
In the second, international part of the Aesthetic Holidays, which was held for the first time in English, we were able to achieve the same positive responses as in the German-language. The event was attended by participants from 19 countries, with people travelling from as far afield as China, Taiwan, Mexico and Canada. It was very good to see members from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates discussing and exchanging their experiences with those from Israel.
