Letter from the IFFAS President - February 2021

After a tough year because of the present health situation, the IFFAS board has decided to move on with a face to face meeting in Chile 2022 (April 28-30, Sheraton Viña del Mar Convention Center).

Korean board has also agreed to postpone their meeting until 2024.

We have seen great commitment to make it a unique and highly expected scientific event in Chile. Not only from the faculty but also from attendees and the industry point of view.

The scientific committee will work even harder to make all the necessary updates to fulfill everyone’s expectations.

Stay healthy and see you all soon!
