Dear friends and colleagues,
On behalf of the Organising Committee, I am delighted to invite you to the 9th Emirates Otorhinolaryngology Audiology and Communication Disorders Congress held on 16-18 January 2019 in Dubai. This year, we are joining forces with the German ENT Society to present to you an international congress which would cover all aspects of otorhinolaryngology, oudiology and communication disorders.
The astounding success of the previous congress attended by 2000 delegates from around the globe motivated us to strive for bigger and better congress this year and thus, we have gathered a world-class panel of expert speakers to address you from both international and regional communities. This congress will provide a platform to share experiences and discuss breakthroughs in various specialist fields and a necessary criterion to successfully assess and expand your own practices. We have included keynote lectures, round table discussions, instructional courses, video sessions and abstract sessions covering a wide array of topics for you to be introduced to the latest technologies and techniques in the field of ENT.
The 2019 congress will also have several live surgical pre-congress workshops on state-of-the-art anatomical specimens. From the variety of presentations submitted to us by the research committee, the scientific committee will choose the best ones to be presented during the congress, and the best presentations will be recognised and awarded.
We have kept the registration fee at affordable rates to encourage the participation of young and upcoming practitioners and scientists. The congress venue is conveniently located in the centre of the city, close to the airport, metro stations and shopping destinations. We have great pride in welcoming you to Dubai, the true cosmopolitan city of the world, offering a kaleidoscope of attractions. We are confident that this congress will exceed your expectations, offering an exciting scientific event as well as an enjoyable social and cultural experience.
We look forward to meeting you all in Dubai in January 2019 for one of the best scientific gathering in the region.
