ACE and the Aesthetics Awards postponed until May 2021
London, 1 December 2020: The Aesthetics Conference and Exhibition (ACE) will now take place on 28 & 29 May 2021, with the prestigious Aesthetics Awards taking place on 29 May following the second day of ACE.
To deliver an event where the entire medical aesthetics industry can reunite in the safest and most successful possible way, and to celebrate their achievements after a tough year, Easyfairs, decided to postpone both events.
Alison Willis, Divisional Director of Easyfairs’ Aesthetics portfolio, explains:
“Following the heartening news of the Prime Minister’s recent announcement regarding the re-opening of the events sector, the progression of rapid testing and multiple effective vaccine trials, we are excited to welcome back our exhibitors, sponsors, delegates and partners. However, with capacity restrictions in place until April, to reunite as many medical professionals as possible safely and successfully, we have decided to postpone a further two months”.
Currently, the capacity limits in place only allow 1,000 people within a venue space indoors at any one time, or 50% capacity, whichever is lower. With 2,000 delegates attending ACE each year, the organisers wanted to give as many delegates as possible the chance to come together to learn and network face-to-face.
Although Easyfairs remains confident that they could deliver a safe event to extremely high standards, they want to deliver ACE and the Aesthetics Awards to the best possible standard. The government has announced that from April, restrictions will be lifting further, the vaccine will have been rolled out to most intended recipients, and therefore the world will begin to shift back towards normality.
Willis added: “To continue to provide top education for our delegates, we have been working with manufacturers and suppliers to offer a series of exclusive virtual takeovers, which will launch in January 2021. The takeovers will include educational webinars, social media takeovers and editorial coverage allowing practitioners to dip in and out of content. Clinicians can learn from brands and hear from their KOLs, to get a real feel for a company’s ethos and continue their education in the lead up to conferences and events.”
