You Are Invited

Distinguished professionals in the fields of plastic surgery, dermatology, hair transplantation, and dentistry across the Asia Pacific,

The government of the city of Daegu in the Republic of Korea has established the first ever Asia Pacific Anti-Aging Course (APAAC) to be offered from November 23 (Friday) to November 25 (Sunday), 2018, with the aim to facilitate exchange within the Asia Pacific anti-aging industry and encourage its further promotion. This anti-aging event is the only one of its kind officially established by a local government in Korea and promises to be an important window for exchange of medical knowledge and industry cooperation in the future. It is with this in mind that we cordially invite you to visit Daegu this coming November, during the country’s most beautiful season.

As one of Korea’s three largest cities, Daegu is an industrial urban center that has led the country’s economic development. Currently, the city has designated five key sectors as new growth industries—medicine, water resources, energy, robots and the Internet of Things, and future vehicles—and is heavily investing in these areas. Notably, Daegu is the country’s leading medical center renowned both in Korea and abroad, and is home to a government-designated advanced medical complex and over 3,700 hospitals including 12 general hospitals, 47 cutting-edge medical institutions and over 7,500 medical specialists. Every year, over 20,000 patients undergo medical treatment or receive medical services in Daegu, a feat made possible by the city’s excellent pool of professionals, quality of medical service, advanced medical equipment, and above all, the strong commitment on the part of the local government.

As the 1st APAAC is the culmination of Daegu’s capabilities in the medicine and beauty industries, the event will undoubtedly serve as a unique official channel to facilitate exchange in anti-aging expertise, technology, and industry knowledge with experts in China. Beyond that, the 1st APAAC will be an international forum for exchange for the entire Asia Pacific region.

To that end, we warmly invite you to participate in the 2018 APAAC in November and enjoy Korea’s beautiful autumn season and the city of Daegu, the country’s proud medical capital.
