"I had the privilege of participating in the American-Brazilian Aesthetic Meeting in Park City, Utah held in February of 2021. The meeting is in a fantastic location especially if you love winter sports. Besides the divertisment and collegial atmosphere I am impressed with the top shelf presentations at this meeting. There are well known participants in aesthetic surgery, and this year, because of Covid, the organizers put together an amazing array of virtual presenters and panels from every corner of the world. I came away with many pearls for my practice and refreshed from the experience of being on the mountain in Park City. I believe anyone who attends will be coming back year after year for this great meeting."

"After almost a year without a live meeting it was such a joy to have attended ABAM 2021 in person! As always well organized, well run and this year with all COVID safety measures in place. Such a pleasure to see and interact with my friends and colleagues on site. For those whose travel restrictions prevented in person attendance the flawless worldwide live streaming provided interactive access to the meeting. The live international panels from South America and Europe flawlessly brought the speakers into the auditorium for lively interactions. Congratulations to the AV Staff, Susan Russell, her staff and Renato and Flavia Saltz for a memorable, amazing and successful meeting not to mention the greatest snow on Earth! I look forward to seeing all my worldwide friends and colleagues live next year at ABAM 2022."
-Foad Nahai, MD - USA
"The first ever Hybrid ABAM was an absolute delight! Obviously I wish we could have been with you in person since we miss all of you. With that being said, participating virtually in giving lectures and also listening to the incredible informative lectures was amazing. Thank you so much for including me in ABAM!"

The international presence allowed exchange of ideas and innovations and I was very honored to take part in the scientific program. It was a wonderful Brazilian experience with unequalled hospitality and natural beauty. My son and my daughter could not forget the beaches and their surf experience, so they started saving their allowences and learning Porteguese. They plan to go back and live in Florianopolis. If they are not settled by that time, I will join your next ABAM meeting in Park City.""

The international flavors of aesthetics dashed with spices of different thought always create a savory taste of knowledge that won't leave you wanting more. Expect both your mind and spirit to be completely and utterly satiated.”

“Renato Saltz and his colleagues and team coordinate not only a great educational meeting but also create an environment that allows unparalleled interaction among those attending. I think this is certainly now considered the premier aesthetic symposium that is held in a world class ski resort and yet really only about half of the people attending actually make it to the slopes!!!! That speaks volumes.”
