30. Nov 2023 — 3. Dec 2023
Our IOS meetings have a proud 20-year history, and in 2023, we are thrilled to host the IOS meeting in my home region. This event will also serve as the first annual meeting of our group, and we look forward to celebrating together. Our main goal is to bring our virtual community to life by bringing everyone together in person.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a two-day conference, and as an added bonus, we are offering a complimentary pre-conference course. Moreover, on Sunday, we have planned a rising stars event that is free of charge, with a small token amount to cover expenses such as catering.
The program will comprise a diverse group of individuals, including men and women, young rising stars, and seasoned experts from various nationalities, all sharing a passion for our wonderful profession. The program will cover six topics, including hybrid treatments, MA(R)PE, 3D in-office technology, TADs, lingual treatment, space closure, and the prosthodontic interface.
Please join us with the understanding that this won't be the best meeting, nor are we the best Facebook group. Our meeting may not boast a luxurious location or extravagant gala dinner. Some of you may have to spend the night on houseboats instead of five-star hotels, and there won't be any champagne or famous performers. We won't have the latest or most spectacular lectures, nor will you find a Chanel store around the corner. However, what makes us stand out is our uniqueness. Our conference hall was originally named "Naked Ass," and we'll likely rent a large boat for overnight stays. Our lectures will feature a diverse mix of speakers of different ages, genders, and ideologies. We're open to any technique that can improve our patients' treatment outcomes and make our lives easier. We'll have plenty of wine and two bands of friends, and the location won't distract you from the event program or engaging with colleagues.
There's still a chance to book the full four days for the price of two. It would mean the world to me if you could help us turn our crazy idea into reality
