The program will commence on Friday 10 April at 8.00am and run through to finish with lunch at 12.00 noon on Sunday 12 April 2015.

The Queenstown Conference program will offer an exciting mix of lectures and panel discussions on sinus, rhinoplasty and medial skull base surgery.

The theme of the conference will be clinical efficacy in rhinology, as in the current political climate it is becoming increasingly important for us to be able to document and demonstrate the effectiveness of our interventions.

We are extremely fortunate to have four of the world's leading academic rhinologists as keynote speakers and there will be an opportunity for presentation of best research abstracts.The program will be oriented more toward the interests of practicing rhinologists and generalists with an interest in rhinology rather than those surgeons in tertiary care.
