The first interstate industry conference for many this year was a big success; here’s what went down at ROAR 2.0 in Melbourne.
It is not easy to plan events at the moment. With snap lockdowns and border closures only one ‘mystery COVID case’ away, the industry held its breath in the lead-up to ROAR 2.0 in Melbourne, organised by Venus Concept and EnVogue Skin. As the conference was a ‘Zoom-free zone’, all presenters and guests, even those from interstate, planned to be at the Park Hyatt in Melbourne on Saturday, May 15, 2021. Thankfully, borders stayed open, and so over 100 people from the medi-aesthetics industry gathered to learn and connect.
Doctors, cosmetic nurses and physicians, and dermal clinicians and therapists heard from renowned speakers about the latest in facial rejuvenation, body sculpting treatments, hair transplant technology, and networking skills, hosted by communications expert and inspirational speaker, Grazina Fechner. The program kicked off with live injectable and PDO threads demonstrations by Dr Steven Liew and Dr Cosima Karlburger, and a lesson on facial harmony and combination therapy by Dr Lucas De Siqueira.
After a delicious lunch break and a well-needed catching up opportunity between industry peers, Dr Nik Davies talked us through the revolutionary hair transplant device, Neograft, and how it gives so many of his patients back their confidence. Guests also learned more about Venus Concept’s body contouring device VenusBliss, which had its own cozy suite at the hotel, inviting guests to try the treatment for themselves.
Dr Sean Arendse closed the device talks of the day with a presentation of Venus Tribella, the ‘holy trinity’ of facial rejuvenation, combining IPL, DiamonPloar RF, and Skin Resurfacing nano-fractional RF. Grazina Fechner followed with advice on how to network and build valuable relationships.
Throughout the day, guests were invited to chat to and learn more about the event’s sponsors, including skincare brands Dermalist, Dermaenergy, and Murad, design and fit-out company MediFit, and medical technology distributor MediGroup.
But it wouldn’t be a ROAR event without a good amount of entertainment. Besides several media and flower walls perfect for those Instagrammable snaps, and a candy bar attracting sweet tooths all day long, attendees got treated to two dance and musical performances (the first one in a flashmob style, surprising delegates in between educational sessions, and the second one an impressive take on The Greatest Showman) before hitting the dance floor to boogie the night away.
Venus Concept and EnVogue Skin successfully brought the Victorian aesthetics industry together at ROAR 2.0, and we cannot wait to do it all again in Sydney on June 19, and on the Gold Coast on July 24.
