Welcome Message by Organizing Chairman
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is with immense pleasure, honour & humility I extend this invitation for the most awaited gathering DERMACON 2020, the 48 th National Conference of Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists & Leprologists.
Pune had hosted DERMACON way back in 1987 in Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Medical college with only 800 delegates. However, over last 3 decades, our field of dermatology has undergone a huge transformation and every year we see an increasing number of delegates attending this prestigious event.
Organizing such an important & huge congress in a non-metro city is a challenging task. However, I am sure that with the help of our dedicated team members, we can make it a signature event and set an example for the youngsters to carry forward the legacy.
The theme of the conference is “TRADITION TO TECHNOLOGY”. The scientific sessions will depict it perfectly well to suit the needs of attending delegates in a city, which also is a perfect blend of age old traditions and immense technological advancements.
Globalisation knocked on Pune’s doors in the 1990s. However, some colonial-era charm has still been retained in a few old buildings & peths, bringing about a pleasant coexistence of old and the new.
A warm city in a cooler climate, Pune boasts of having many important religious, historical, and tourist attractions of the regions like Khandala, Matheran and Mahabaleshwar. Some of the famous hill forts of the Marathas, such as Sinhagad, Rajgad, Torna are trekkers paradise. Yesteryears cycle city is regaining its charm and is chosen for a smart city project.
The conference will be hosted at Laxmi Lawns, Magarpatta, Hadapsar, Pune
which has a close proximity to airport & railway station and has many good staying options in the vicinity. Delegate comfort will be our top priority and I am sure the venue arrangements will make it absolutely smooth for each and everyone participating in the conference. Well balanced academic sessions, interesting non-academic events and some unique ideas will be the highlights of this conference.
he whole of Team Pune is rallying to give their very best to make your experience of DERMACON 2020 memorable.
Looking forward to meeting you all in Pune in 2020.
Dr. Narendra Patwardhan
