“In consideration of the health and safety concerns surrounding an in-person event, we have made the decision to move to a virtual meeting platform,” said Erica O’Grady, CAE, CEO of the Society. “We look forward to presenting a meeting that features the same high-quality content, outstanding speakers, and exciting showcase that our attendees have come to expect – and a few new features, as well. This virtual format will allow safe access and engagement for participants from around the globe.”
The SCC staff and the Committee on Scientific Affairs, has reimagined the conference format and are planning five full days of cosmetic science education, featuring two keynotes and eight scientific sessions, a virtual poster and showcase floor, and more. With full meeting registration, attendees will receive access to all sessions across the five-day meeting, and no sessions will run concurrently – which means attendees don’t need to choose one session over another. The complete program agenda will be announced in the coming weeks.
Registration will open the second week of September, when the Society will also announce a reduction in its usual pricing structure including group discounts for this year’s Annual Meeting & Showcase. Combined with reduced registration fees, participation will be even more affordable for attendees without the added expense of travel and lodging.
Here are some details of the meeting:
- Save the dates: December 7-11, 2020 (a week earlier than previously scheduled)
- Registration opens September 9, 2020
- SCC74 will include:
o A virtual Showcase enabling connection with suppliers, consultants, students, and other industry service providers
o “Ask the Expert” virtual sessions
o Presidential Address & Awards Recognition
o Annual Membership Business Meeting
o Online Networking Opportunities
