Dear colleague, Laser Europe 2018 “Skin & Body Conference”, will be held in Rotterdam, 14th – 16th June 2018. A follow up of our very successful Amsterdam conference in 2014 which was scored by participants with an overall 9 out of 10. We now aim for another dazzling conference with new insights but most of all a “building bridges” network and comfortable conference. This time we chose another inspiring metropole for our venue, famous for its huge architectural Erasmus bridge, the New York hotel, basis of the Holland-America shipping line, shopping area and off course the beautiful use of the harbour which connects different parts of the city by an exciting water taxi trip..The event is convened by the European Laser Association (ELA), organized by the Dutch Aesthetic Laser Association (DALA) in cooperation with the British Medical Laser Association (BMLA) and other European and national laser societies. Laser Europe conferences have established an impressive track record of high quality presentations and workshops, combined with a stimulating scientific and social programme. This year there will be something for everyone in this field. Pre-conference Masterclasses will be given by internationally-acclaimed experts who will share their knowledge and experience on a wide range of topics, including skin resurfacing, rejuvenation, injectables, toxines, hair removal, vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, EBD techniques, controverse therapies and a lot of surgical procedures. By enrolling on the courses, you will have a unique opportunity to ask the questions that really matter to you! The scientific programme is diverse and filling up rapidly. There are specific and extensive programmes for dermatologists, plastic surgeons, cosmetic doctors, skin therapists and beauty professionals. You will learn the latest ground-breaking research that is being conducted in all aspects of light, lasers and EBD used for skin and body diagnosis or treatment. Networking, social opportunities, restaurants with outside terraces to enjoy some of the sun, but also ample space for sponsors and distributors are important on such occasions. Therefore, we have chosen the World Trade Centre in the heart of the city with multiple hotels on walking distance, shopping centers and a lot of cultural sightseeing is one step away from the congress centre. Rotterdam is an appealing and international upcoming city. For our social gathering to relax after a hard day’s work, the conference dinner will be at held on a private yacht cruising the waters of Rotterdam while serving a palate tingling dinner followed by dancing but also quiet areas to have a conversation with colleagues or other friends. We look forward to welcoming you to Laser Europe 2018 – Skin & Body Conference! Sincerely, Claudia van der Lugt & Peter Velthuis Co-Presidents of DALA Save the date!
