INVITED SPEAKERS

speakers in meeting

AAHRS and CAHRS have gather renowned experts in the field to generously share their insider knowledge and personal tips to keep you up-to-date with the latest breakthroughs in hair restoration and medical treatments. Our distinguished speakers will be there also to answer any burning questions you may have regarding your daily practice.

FAQ IN APPS

Due to the packed schedule, we have decided to eliminate the usual 5 to 10 minutes allocated for FAQ at the end of each session, as it would only allow for a limited number of questions to be answered. Moreover, the language barrier may hinder audience participation.

To address this, we are introducing a FAQ app to encourage more audience members to seek feedback from the speakers. This app will allow the audience to submit their questions within 15 minutes after the session, and the speakers will answer them on an open platform within the next few days.

Other than that, you can always approach the speakers in person during the Coffee Break for a more direct interaction.
