As the conference chairman of Dubai Derma, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you all to Dubai on the occasion of the 22nd Dubai World Dermatology & Laser Conference & Exhibition to be held on March 1 – 3, 2023 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
Dubai is a world-renowned centre of business and commerce, a vibrant city in the United Arab Emirates, a member of the GCC states and the gateway to the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia market with close proximity to Europe and the Far East. Being international and cosmopolitan, the city offers an infinite variety of things to see and do in a unique fusion of Middle Eastern and Western heritage and culture.
Dubai has always been keeping up with advancing technologies in the dermatology practice in order to meet the constantly evolving needs and demands of the community.
Dubai Derma is organized by several scientific bodies, mainly Arab Academy of Dermatology and Aesthetics (AADA), in cooperation with the GCC League of Dermatology and Pan-Arab League. AADA is proud to be an active member in the International League of Dermatology Society (ILDS). Therefore, our scientific program is accredited by all these mentioned scientific bodies.
Dubai Derma will bring together eminent speakers from the region and around the globe covering a wide spectrum of themes affecting the world of dermatology. The Dubai Derma scientific program features a four-day pre-conference course, conference program, workshops and live demonstrations exemplifying novel cosmetic and dermatological procedures.
Dubai Derma provides all dermatology colleagues worldwide with a vibrant platform to update their knowledge, explore new advances in the dermatological and technological field, and foster closer ties.
Dubai aims to compete globally in the events and entertainment industry by becoming one of the strongest Middle Eastern hubs for mega events and festivities – this is showcased with its pioneer for a mega event in this region, Expo 2020 Dubai, largest mega event in a first-of-its-kind size with over 190 countries participating.
I look forward to welcome you all in the next edition of Dubai Derma!
Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani
Executive Chairman, Dubai Derma
We are delighted to welcome you all to the 22nd edition of the annual Dubai World Dermatology and Laser Conference & Exhibition – Dubai Derma, and thank you for attending the largest event in the Middle East, North Africa, and Indian Subcontinent region dedicated to providing the latest scientific information and innovations in the field of dermatology, skin care and lasers.
In today’s world, skin health has shown to be a major factor for one’s confidence and overall well-being, so the methods of treatment and healthcare products have become an integral part of our society. The global skin care product market size has recently breached $130 billion, with no signs of slowing down, and there has been an 80% increase in demand for dermatologists from 2004 to our present date, with a continuing 7% yearly increase projected thereafter.
So, to meet the ever-increasing requirements for solutions, we find it imperative for us to combine the finest speakers, specialists, industry experts, and skincare physicians on a unified platform to deliver the latest educational resources and advancements in medical technology and treatment for skincare with a series of discussions through a variety of courses, workshops, and lectures on major topics, to better serve the needs of our patients. As always, this exhibition also provides a great opportunity for major leading skin care brands and companies in the industry to showcase and promote their advanced tools and technologies.
Under this year’s theme, ‘Shaping the Future of Dermatology and Aesthetics,’ we will cover many topics that include medical, therapeutic, pediatric, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. We will also view clinical case presentations in order to gain an in-depth knowledge of the various procedures and diagnosis we encounter today. So, we welcome you to take advantage of the pre-conference courses on dermatology and dermatopathology, as well as the AADA Fellowship Course on dermatology, aesthetics and lasers.
We thank the many important stakeholders, partners, dermatology associations, sponsors and exhibitors, and the prominent health authorities that continue to provide their support to make this conference a success, and we wish them countless triumphs in the forthcoming years ahead.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the 22nd edition of Dubai Derma and we hope you have a wonderful experience, and a safe and pleasant stay together!
