In addition, the exhibitors from various countries will also get an opportunity to understand the local market.

Commenting on the Hybrid format of EPSC 2021, Dr. Sanjay Parashar, Scientific Chairman of EPSS, said, "The industry is evolving every day as surgeons and practitioners around the world go about their jobs. Surgeons around the world are identifying new methods and techniques to perform surgeries and procedures. This is the key reason for us to hold EPSC, for an Intellectual exchange."

Dr. Vakis Kontoes, Plastic and Aesthetic Surgeon, Chairman of ISAPS Educational Council, said, "In my opinion, despite the new technological developments in our field, the most important breakthrough is the tireless efforts to ensure the safety of our procedures and maintaining very high standards, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected all sectors of our practice."

He added, "Hybrid meetings allow colleagues around the world, who cannot travel due to the existing restrictions of the pandemic, to maintain and enrich their knowledge by attending scientific meetings virtually."

The Emirates Plastic Surgery Congress is organised annually by the Emirates Plastic Surgery Society (EPSS) under the umbrella of Emirates Medical Association and in collaboration with Congress Secretariat, INDEX Conferences and Exhibitions – a member of INDEX Holding.
