CCR provides the central hub for exhibitors and organisations of both the surgical and non-surgical disciplines. This year, CCR is proud to be the first large scale exhibition to be reopening its doors and reuniting a booming industry which is set to bounce back quickly.  This year, the conference hosts the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), the British Cosmetic Dermatology Group (BCDG) and Aesthetic Complications Expert (ACE) Group World. In a unique one-off, annual event, these organisations and others, come together to share information with the aesthetics community and inform and address thousands of visitors over the two-day show. 

This year CCR’s Surgical Arena will incorporate the ISAPS Symposium UK, which will bring to life a surgical agenda, presenting cutting edge, innovative surgical procedures focusing on breast and body. The Symposium will be open to all plastic surgeons for whom a dedicated networking lounge will be available where exhibitors can also access and meet with the delegates. This new addition to the UK’s leading medical aesthetics event will unite the UK’s aesthetic plastic surgeons under one roof, integrating surgical education and networking into CCR to enable true cross-fertilisation of knowledge between surgical and non-surgical practitioners. 

The programme, which will be curated by Naveen Cavale, ISAPS National Secretary and Mo Akhavani, ISAPS Assistant National Secretary will involve presentations by both international and local speakers. Cavale and Akhavani will also be curating the content for the Face and Eyes section of the CCR Surgical Arena alongside the CCR conference team.

Back to school

As always, this year’s show will incorporate an unparalleled and comprehensive education programme, all of which is CPD accredited.  October’s education highlights include a one-day videoed cadaver training course with industry guru Dr Tapan Patel of London’s renowned PHI Clinic. Dr Tapan says: “I’m so proud to be returning to CCR this year to carry out a full-day cadaver course during which I will be demonstrating a range of educational techniques utilising a cadaver. Attending the course is a fantastic way to really study how to best treat your patients; the correct placement of filler and how and why complications might occur (and how to avoid them!) I’m so excited to share my experiences with my peers and to talk about how I administer treatment to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results.” There is an additional cost for this highly sought-after conference, but there are a large number of conferences that will be free-to-attend.

Also, look out for the much-anticipated clinic management focus this year, which will provide some much-needed advice to help get aesthetic businesses back on track during the busy months that lie ahead. Shannon Kilgariff, who is co-ordinating CCR’s In Practice business conference comments: “After such a hard year for everyone within the industry we want to offer as much advice as possible from as many viewpoints as possible to our delegates to make sure that they feel that they are well-armed to take on a post-Covid world. ‘In Practice’ will cover everything from booking systems to social media platforms – we know that there will be something in there for everyone.”

New Partnerships

Furthermore, ISAPS will be producing 2 full mornings of surgical content which will be open to all surgeons and Healthcare Professionals. CCR is proud that along with the above revered organisations, the BCDG will also have a presence at the event.

CCR is absolutely thrilled that Swiss pharmaceutical brand Galderma will be headlining as a sponsor and will come armed to the conference with some exciting news of their own. Galderma is the world’s largest independent dermatology company, present in approximately 100 countries. Their innovative, science-based portfolio – of sophisticated brands and services across aesthetics, consumer care and prescription medicine – makes them an ideal partner for the conference and their news is awaited with great anticipation. The brand will be celebrating 25 years of Restylane, as well as bringing Sculptra under the Galderma umbrella.

Of their involvement in the event, Joanna Neal, Galderma’s brand manager comments: “We are thrilled to be headlining at CCR 2021.  For us, this year’s CCR is a must-attend event, and we always look forward to hearing about the latest developments within the industry. Our brand is ever-evolving, and we are so excited to be sharing our news to all of the CCR attendees – we’ve missed attending events such as these and can’t wait to be face to face with old friends and colleagues once again!”   

Hot Off the Press!

CCR welcomes back Press Ambassador Francesca White, Tatler Beauty Editor At Large and Editor of the Tatler Beauty & Cosmetic Surgery Guide, and NEW for this year, Francesca will take on an additional role as Master of Ceremonies and compere for the first ever CCR Aesthetics Press Conference. On her role, Francesca comments: “I am thrilled to have been invited to be this year’s CCR press ambassador once again. It’s truly an honour and a privilege to be involved in THE show for both the surgical and non-surgical disciplines and to work with the most eminent practitioners in their fields. The new press conference element that I will be chairing for this year is hugely exciting and will provide the first and only press-specific closed event to obtain news of all the pioneering and most cutting-edge research, launches and advancements in the aesthetics market. I expect it to be a hot ticket for 2021 and the subsequent years!”

Courtney Baldwin, Event Manager CCR & Aesthetics:

“We are honoured to welcome so many distinguished brands and prominent industry bodies to CCR this year. The event has always brought the entire medical aesthetics community together and 2021 is no exception. Our conference will be the first educational meeting this year to unite all specialties, and we can’t wait!”
