Workshops

Workshops places are now full. There may be places allocated on the day of the conference so please check availability at registration. Unfortunately we cannot take any more reservations. Thank you for your interest.

We are delighted to offer two innovations at BOPSS this year both taking place during morning registration.  Places are free at all events only for delegates registered for the full scientific meeting.

On Thursday morning we have lined up 6 tables of experts ready to answer questions on a difficult or challenging case you may have faced in your practice.  You should bring your case on your own tablet or laptop in a PowerPoint format with a maximum of 5 slides containing photos, scans and / or written material.  You will be allocated a maximum of 6 minutes to discuss your case, and places will be allocated on first arrival basis on the day.  You must have consent from your patient to discuss their case in this environment.  It would be helpful if you could indicate whether you will be interested in submitting a case when you book for the meeting.

On Friday morning there are two pre-meeting industry sponsored workshops.

Miss Sabrina Shah-Desai will share her experience on working with fillers with a practical lecture demonstration with lots of videos on technique and tips.  This lecture demonstration is free and we can accommodate approximately 100 delegates in lecture theatre 3.  It would be helpful if you could indicate whether you will be attending this workshop when you book for the meeting.

Prof Ganga Sundar (Singapore) and Dr Dilp Srinavasan (Maxillofacial Surgeon, Nottingham) will run a practical hands on, one-hour orbital trauma workshop using 3D printed skulls with fractures, reconstructed using 3D CT scanning from actual patients. Titanium meshes and a new Biosorbable mesh will be available to understand how these defects can be repaired.  There will be short video demonstrations and handouts.  This workshop is limited to approximately 60 people.  It would be helpful if you could indicate whether you will be attending this workshop when you book for the meeting on the registration page.

If you already have tickets, you can add on a workshop place at any time via the registration page.
