There will be over nine (9) hours of educational programming each day. The full education and professionally developed program is focused on all facets of ENT surgery with the objective of providing the best possible outcomes for patients.

A typical forum program day will start with breakfast sessions followed by keynote presentations, panel sessions, free paper presentations, case studies and cutting-edge technique presentations and interactive workshops each day.

Please note: Flights from Australia and New Zealand arrive in Fiji mid/late afternoon. Accordingly you need to make travel and accommodation bookings for the day before the opening of the conference.
