The biggest scientific conference in aesthetics at a glance
There is one obligatory date for the biggest names in aesthetics – the annual congress IMCAS. It appears as kind of class reunion as many of the contributing speakers and consuming participants join the event in Paris for many years in a row. Not only the still magic romantic effect of the French capital, but also the option to learn and socialize fascinates aesthetic professionals from all over the world.

Like, you can find „everybody“ who contributes in the aesthetic area there. In 2019, around 11.000 professionals joined the conference and listened to more than 300 lectures.
