Postponement of Aesthetics Business Conference (ABC) 2020

Postponement of Aesthetics Business Conference (ABC) 2020

In light of the current climate and unprecedented time we find ourselves in, the team at Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance have been closely monitoring the evolution of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In addition to this, we have taken into account all of the advice and recommendations provided by the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as the current UK Government guidance. As a team we have also considered how the current situation will impact the safety and wellbeing of our attendees at the Aesthetics Business Conference (ABC).

Due to the unforeseeable, unavoidable and uncertain characteristics of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the health, safety and wellbeing of our practitioners, exhibitors, speakers and staff is of paramount importance. We feel that continuing with ABC 2020 at this time would therefore be of significant risk to everyone involved.

With safety our main priority, we have made the decision to postpone the Aesthetics Business Conference until 2021. Despite a number of lockdown restrictions being relaxed the complexity of the pandemic, and uncertainty that it brings day to day, means that we cannot guarantee that attendees will be able to get the most out of ABC this year. As a result, we felt that the best solution is to move the date to next year for a better conference experience and increased attendee safety.

This is not a decision that has been made lightly, but with our staff and community’s best interests at heart. We believe this is the best possible resolution.

Eddie Hooker, CEO at Hamilton Fraser states: “The Aesthetic Business Conference (ABC) has been running now for the past three years offering important and relevant business advice to practitioners on subjects such as marketing, social media, tax and VAT, and regulation of the industry.”

However, with the current COVID-19 crisis currently the single most important issue on the minds of all sectors of industry, and the immediate challenges aesthetic practitioners and their businesses are facing, we have taken the decision to postpone this year’s conference until 2021.’

The Aesthetics Business Conference will now take place on Monday 7 June 2021at the existing venue; The Royal College of Physicians.
