MyFaceMyBody announces that the Global Virtual Aesthetic Summit (GVAS) 2020 will consist of two virtual events: the GVAS Essentials Meeting on May 30, 2020, and the GVAS 2-day Summit on November 14 and 15, 2020.

Last year’s GVAS delivered a unique conference format, hosting the aesthetic meeting in a virtual space, over 48 hours. During the meeting, 1,450 delegates attended virtually from 22 countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, India, and as far afield as Grand Cayman, Russia and the Philippines.   

GVAS 2020 will build on that success with a timetable that features both clinical and business programs. Held virtually and available in four different languages, the program will be a truly global event, MyFaceMyBody explains in a news release.

Virtual visitors will be able to visit regional exhibition halls, engage with vendors, and learn about some of the latest technologies from around the world. Attendees can even gain CME and CPD credits. This has proven to be a successful conference format to educate the entire practice team without the time and cost associated with attending a physical event., MyFaceMyBody notes in the release.

“We are excited to continue to push the limits that are ‘virtually’ impossible to achieve at a physical event,” says Stephen Handisides, founder of GVAS and MyFaceMyBody, in the release.

“GVAS 2020 is going to be showcasing the very best content in the world within an environment that is both convenient and cost-effective for anyone to attend.”

“You no longer need to travel; you can participate, learn and engage from the comfort of your own home, clinic, or even airport,” he adds. “GVAS means that every valuable minute is used on learning, educating and networking, not traveling away from your business.”

GVAS 2020 will feature more “hands-on” high-definition practical workshops, for both basic and advanced levels; inside and behind-the-scenes access to successful and state-of-the-art practices; improved “instant chat” and engagement features between exhibitors and attendees; enhanced chat rooms to engage in text and video chats with peers; and prizes and rewards that can be earned during the GVAS experience.

Aesthetics professionals can look forward to the following, the release explains:

GVAS Essentials meeting (One Day) – May 30, 2020 – The event is aimed at those that are setting up in aesthetics — Experts will lead attendees through the entire patient journey and will go behind the scenes of a “real practice environment.” Fundamental workshops will include anatomy, complications, insights, introduction to injectables, energy devices, and facial analysis, as well as consultation techniques and role-plays. Step by Step Guides to setting up an aesthetic business, how to set up a marketing and business plan, generate leads, and over-exceed your customers’ expectations and achieve lifelong clients will be taught.  

GVAS Summit (Two Days) November 14 – 15 – This event will be more intensive and in-depth. Highlights: Master’s – “Hands-On” Practical Workshops from world leaders in the field of aesthetics; Essentials – Patient “Follow Through” from facial analysis to technique demonstrations; Aesthetic Insights – Covering hot topics within aesthetics globally; road map to business success tailored to those setting up, growing and selling the practice; and exclusive interviews and debates with aesthetics professionals.
