Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance, President of the Dubai Health Authority

It gives me great pleasure to invite everyone to come to Dubai and participate in the 18th Dubai World Dermatology and Laser Conference & Exhibition – Dubai Derma 2018 dated 19-21 March 2018. This meeting is universal and unique as it aims to promote the continuous medical education and up-todate learning in the science of medical, surgical, cosmetic and aesthetic dermatology & laser through innovative lectures and symposia.

Dubai Derma will enhance the personal and professional relationships among skin care professionals from different countries. The event is one of the world’s firmly established and inveterate congresses that held every year in Dubai since 2001. It is also an honour that this year Dubai Derma will jointly held in conjunction with the 11th Asian Dermatological Congress by the Asian Dermatological Association, which will add more distinctive, excellence and merit to the meeting.

Lively Dubai as the jewel of United Arab Emirates is a great city of heritage, legacy, civilization, development and wise leadership. The main factors for hosting this congress in Dubai is its strategic location and accessible airlift. Dubai has emerged as the premier meetings and conference destination in the region and one of the best in the world!

Dubai is a candidate city for the XXV World Congress of Dermatology – 2023, to be held under the auspices of the International League of Dermatological Societies (ILDS). The bidding will happen during the World Congress of Dermatology 2019 in Milan, Italy. I take this opportunity to invite everyone to support and vote for Dubai to host the World Congress of Dermatology – 2023.

I look forward to seeing you at Dubai Derma 2018. Wishing you all a wonderful visit and memorable personal and professional relationships among all our guests.
