Welcome Messages

Milan Profant
IFOS General Secretary

When saying Goodbye at the closing ceremony in Paris 2017 one would not believe what the future would bring. The perspective of the IFOS congresses and training and educational activities looked so promising and perfect, and our Canadian friends celebrated their victory. The Covid period has changed everything. ...... The international and internal Canadian situation did not allow the IFOS Congress to be organised in June 2022. After intensive discussion the IFOS Board has decided to move the congress to Dubai for the period January 17-21, 2023. So, the baton of the IFOS Congress organization has been passed to Hussain Al Rand, President of the United Arab Emirates ORL HN Society. The Congress Scientific Committee supported by the best experts from the Gulf region together in cooperation with IFOS subspeciality chairpersons, YO IFOS group, French and Canadian colleagues have a great responsibility to prepare successful IFOS Congress 2023.

It will be a different IFOS congress from the Paris one. Not better, not worse - simply different. In principle the IFOS Congress will always be the gathering of experts from all over the world with round tables, panels, instructional courses, oral presentations, posters, movies etc. But each organizer and all participants inoculate a different atmosphere, personal contribution which makes the IFOS Congress so unique, diverse, and different from the previous meetings.

The time for the high-level scientific program preparation is significantly shorter than for other IFOS Congresses. We have regular meetings with the Congress Organization and Scientific committee, and I can see how much effort is being invested to reach the goal: the unique IFOS world ORL congress in Dubai 2023. Each single detail has been discussed regarding the personal communication, scientific program, social program, modern technologies, education, and training. I have no doubt that in the period 17-21 of January 2023 all of you who plan to come to Dubai for the IFOS 2023 will appreciate this effort and activities of the UAE, GCC and international colleagues to prepare attractive program and the friendly milieu for gathering otorhinolaryngologists from all over the world.
It is my great pleasure to invite you all from each continent Africa, America (Central, North and South), Asia, and Europe to meet in Dubai, in the Capital of the ORL World 2023.
