FROM INJECTING TO RESECTING Thousands Attend First-of-its-Kind Reconstructive, Cosmetic and Non-Surgical Event

London – 24 October, 2013 - With over fourteen days’ worth of educational and scientific content packed into two days of intense, focused activity, the first-ever Clinical Cosmetic & Reconstructive Expo (CCR) www.ccr-expo.com at London’s Olympia will not be soon forgotten by a medical sector which had never seen an event of its kind taking place in the UK.

Numbers of attendees which included aesthetic and reconstructive surgeons, cosmetic doctors and nurses clocked at 2,398 and 116% of the 1,170msq worth of stands sold this year has already been re-booked, with still a year to go before the next CCR Expo scheduled for 10-11 October, 2014 again at London Olympia. The event, which saw over 120 exhibitors showcasing their wares was covered in high-profile mainstream media including the Times, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, Daily Mail and the Evening Standard as well as specialised trade press such as Independent Practitioner Today and Cosmetic News.

Three highly specialised conferences took place simultaneously, with lectures on a varied range of cutting-edge subjects; from hand transplants and separating conjoined twins, to discussions on cultural and societal beauty ideals, the correct proportions for breast augmentations and the latest in cosmetic injectables. Live demos of the newest technologies ran concurrently to the conferences, alongside animated and controversial debates which saw leading experts address the sector’s hottest topics.

Peter Jones, Chief Executive Officer for CCR Expo, says:
“We are thrilled with the reception given to this year’s programme – the feedback has been nothing less than fantastic and we are already full of exciting plans for next year; we will be offering double the demo area space, an additional theatre, double the free-of-charge workshop as well as injectables and dedicated cosmeceuticals education content. We have received confirmation from leading medical associations that wish to hold their annual scientific meetings at CCR – an amazing vote of confidence which will be fully justified as we roll out our 2014 strategies.”


Consultant plastic surgeon and Chairman of the Expo’s Medical Advisory Board Norman Waterhouse, who is also former President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), says;

“I couldn’t be more delighted with how the Expo panned out – our vision was to bring a fragmented sector together in one groundbreaking event; to learn from each other and help shape best practice for the profession and promote patient safety. Reviewing attendance numbers alongside the extraordinary feedback we have received, our objectives of sharing knowledge were successfully achieved, and we look forward to continuing to provide a positive platform to enhance dialogue and education for many years to come.”
