Due to unexpected circumstances and recent unforeseen limitations imposed by the event venue, we find ourselves in an unparalleled situation where we could not accommodate all of our registrants for the October meetings in California.

Our first priority is always our faculty and attendees, and due to the difficulties in providing sleeping rooms, we have decided that it is best to hold the events when there will be space to house everyone. We have therefore made the difficult decision to postpone the meeting to 2023.

Although this predicament is a huge credit and honor to the meeting’s program/agenda and our extraordinarily talented faculty, we did not want to have to limit the number of registrants to our meeting. 

We appreciate your understanding during this postponement and are excited to provide these brilliant educational courses to you on the west coast in this beautiful location next year.

We are working together to outline this program’s future plan and schedule.

In the meantime, we urge you to please subscribe via email if you have not done so already, in order to receive official notification of the new dates which should be available shortly.

– Dr. Suneel Chilukuri (Chair), Dr. Natasha Mesinkovska (Chair) and the LiVDerm Team
