Message from Congress Organising Secretary

Dear Friends,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 7th Biennial Congress of the Asia Pacific Trauma Society (APTS 2019), and the 1st Scientific Meeting of the APOA Foot & Ankle Section, which will be held in Hyatt Regency, Bangkok, Thailand from September 19-22, 2019.

This mega event has attracted global leaders to participate and exchange expertise and to launch brilliant new ideas together. The scientific programme will focus on Symposia and Instructional Lectures given by distinguished speakers from across the world. It would, however, be incomplete without your participation, without free paper presentations and E-posters. We encourage all of you to submit abstracts of your work so that we can put together an exceptional scientific programme.

This meeting is designed to interact with the experts from all over the globe to share and enhance knowledge on the latest international research and developments in the field of orthopaedic traumatology and for interaction among peers. Apart from the invigorating scientific programme, this meeting will also offer its attendees an unforgettable cultural experience.

I would like to extend my sincere invitation to you all to join me in Bangkok. I am sure that this scientific extravaganza will advance orthopaedic knowledge and forge new friendships. I look forward to meeting you in September 2019 in the “Land of Smiles”.
