In my humble opinion, I believe it was a very rich conference. The topics were world class. Something I hear usually in major conferences like Hospital for special surgery and AAOS. i agree the attendees were distracted by the beautiful resort.
Keep on the good work and i truly believe you and your assistants did an outstanding job of selection of lectures, place food, organization etc.

Emad Saweeres, Consultant, Al Sahel Teaching Hospital, Cairo, Egypt

Venue was perfect; timing of the conference during January is perfect; faculty was well trained to give lectures and very scientific; preconference course was perfect as overall evaluation and added to me a lot; conference papers were new and presenting relevant points; workshop was very informative and to the point; sticking to the time was perfect; the financial issues were fine and reasonable; organization (pre and during) was perfect. But, the TKR course was very compressed with a lot of information in one day.

    • Programme was diverse, well balanced
  • Areas for improvement:
    • Of course I understand because of the political situation things might not have gone the way u want
    • Multiple issues were left for last minute, typical Egyptian style, this should not be the case, I recommend u delegate some of the tasks to others early and have a clear programme fixed at least 2 months before hand Advertising; create an email list of all attendance, give them discount if they book next yr in advance, discount if they book in a group to encourage juniors to attend, they can pay a non refundable deposit early to book at discounted rate and full fees a bit later
    • Advertising; ur target should be arab/middle east countries aim to have a formal channel with orthopaedic authorities (like Saudi orthopaedic department) in these countries, offer a discount if any of their members register
    • Audience; most of whom I seen were either professors or working in a university related positions, this by itself is good but u need to also attract others, mainly juniors and ministry of health surgeons
    • Audience; consider offering young surgeons (? below 35yrs) a discount, may be with medical companies offloading some of the cost?
    • sponsored places by the companies this will encourage them to attend
    • Programme; create a session for young surgeons to present their work with a prize for best papers and best poster
    • Programme; create a session for junior doctors soft skills, like presentation skills, how to write a paper, how to do scientific research, how to search for evidence ... etc
    • Programme; invite somebody from the Egyptian orthopaedic society as a formal presentation to give a talk about the current challenges facing orthopeadics in Egypt and other vital issues
    • Programme; invite someone from the ministry of health fellowship programme again to talk about the updates with the fellowship programme

Thanks for your efforts in preparation of this conference in such a hectic days. Second my only comment is would like to have and hear from more highly specialized surgeons in the field of arthroplasty I know that inviting more surgeons is very hard and demanding theses days but I am sure that next year en shaa Allah you will be able to do it
Ahmed Hazem Abdelazeem, Egypt

Thanks a lot for your invitation to the 9th international arthroplasty conference that was held in Sharm Elsheik. The conference this year covered a lot of interesting topics . The discussion and the presentations were of very high standard and covered very important topics. The organisation and venue were excellent. I will definitely recommend the conference next year to my colleagues
Samer Morgan, UK


Thank you again for being a superb host - and ALL the work you did to make the course a success. The pictures are Good memory.
Lawrence Dorr, USA

Thanks for all your organisation for the meeting in Ain Sokhna and it was great meeting many of the local identities in Egyptian orthopaedics. Surgery on the Tuesday was also very interesting and it was good to be part of the introduction of the Oxford UKA into Egypt. I enjoyed the evening and meal at Le Pasha (over the Nile) including the very lively entertainment.
Rami Sorial, Australia

Congratulations for this successful meeting. We have already discussed the not ideal location, although it is very close to Cairo. To make the location attractive again I would propose either Sharm or Hurghada for the future.
Siegefried Hofmann, Austria

I am glad we had such a resounding success of our Unicompartmental instructional course. It seems there is a great support to having two courses per year.
Emad Saweeres, Egypt

The scientific content is excellent. The morning sessions on Fri and Sat are really condensed, attendants will be there for 4 hours without a break, I suggest 15 mins break in between if possible.

Thanks Mahmoud for all your efforts in making this conference happen in the face of sponsor difficulties. Your Commitment to peer education is obvious and to be commended and likewise a big thank you to the faculty who contributed and ensured that what was delivered on the podium was of the highest quality.

An excellent meeting and an absolute pleasure to spend my first trip to Cairo amongst such great friends. Well done on organising and delivering such a wonderful meeting.
Prof. Rhidian Morgan-Jones, UK

It has been a wonderful experience IAC 2019, Cairo. A program well orchestrated by masters like Rami and you was indeed sure to be a success. It was very well made. I wish that I am able to repeat the program in Delhi some day soon.
Prof. Rajeev Sharma, India

It was my pleasure to attend this event for the first time...Very interesting scientific contents. More picturesque Nile view in Cairo. Enjoyed the shisha in the Nubian Cafe. I will do my best to be a regular attendee of this conference from now. I look forward to see a shoulder session in next programs.
Prof. Sameh Ansara, UK

Agree with all the above. SENSATIONAL first visit to Cairo and Egypt. Great camaraderie amongst a truly international faculty. Had a brilliant time Keep me in mind for next one. And Delhi !
Pro. Dermot Collopy, Australia

The content and the faculty selection was great. Thanks for all the efforts you have put into this meeting. It was a real honor and pleasure to be part as faculty. For future meetings we might discuss, how we can attract more audience and keep the presentations less to allow more interaction. Looking forward to meet with all of you again in Egypt next year.
Prof. Siegfried Hofmann, Austria

Thank you so much for having organized the exceptional meeting in Cairo! The photos sent provide memories of the wonderful event, being both an honour and a pleasure to be participant. Looking forward to many occasions for meeting you and also the other faculty members in the next future. I will be very happy to increase our cooperation!
