Reflections from 2015

Shyam Verma, India – Speaker "ISA provides lots of networking opportunity..."Shyam Verma, India – Speaker

“ISA provides lots of networking opportunity because the meeting is not too large – it is compact without sacrificing any of the quality and content. I give 5 out of 5 on all counts: programme, networking, exhibition.”

 

 

Remco Schmitz, Netherlands "This is my first time at ISA and I was surprised..."Remco Schmitz, Netherlands – EMEA Aesthetic Sales Director, Lumenis

“This is my first time at ISA and I was surprised about number of international participants – it has proven to be the right choice to attend. There is definitely a need for international congresses and I prefer smaller conferences like ISA as they are more focused, also for exhibitors, bringing more quality leads.”

 

 

Michael Israel and Stephen Aiyedum, Nigeria – Participants "We are here to learn more about developments in dermatology..."Michael Israel and Stephen Aiyedum, Nigeria – Participants

“We are here to learn more about developments in dermatology so that those coming up in our country will have the knowledge and the encouragement to press on and be encouraged to join the field of dermatology. Coming here is an eye opener, very interesting and we will pass this information on to others.”

 

 

George Reizner, USA – Speaker "Something special about the meeting is the emphasis..."Ncoza Dlova, South Africa – Speaker

“I like the practical aspect of this meeting including the hospital visit. Some of the big meetings have too many things running parallel – the standalone sessions make it possible to attend more of the programme offered, making the meeting unique and attractive to people.
Nowadays, everything is global. ISA encourages the establishment of relationships in terms of research, helping to identify areas of common interest, and enables collaboration with other colleagues from other countries with similar interests.  Secondly it facilitates the development of exchange programmes for registrars and doctors.”

 

George Reizner, USA – Speaker "Something special about the meeting is the emphasis placed on..."George Reizner, USA – Speaker

“Something special about the meeting is the emphasis placed on the young dermatologist having a voice. The meeting is less about hierarchy and much more about learning and networking.”

 

 

Elena Esionova "I regularly search through all international dermatological..."Elena Esionova, Uzbekistan – Participant

“I regularly search through all international dermatological congresses on the web and found ISA.  This conference should take place more often. It provides the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with colleagues from around the world. At ISA I heard many reports in my field of interest and could learn something new which I will take back with me. After this conference I hope that our work will improve in specific fields.”

 

 

Arieh Ingber, Israel – Speaker "There is very much a need for an international meeting of this kind..."Arieh Ingber, Israel – Speaker

“There is very much a need for an international meeting of this kind – ISA not only concentrates on detailed issues in dermatology of interest to small unique niches in dermatology – ISA provides overviews presented by first line dermatologists from all over the world.
In Israel we have 340 active dermatologists and I estimate that 10% are here at this meeting.”
