Dear Friends,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us for the Asia Pacific Trauma Society’s Scientific Congress in the historic city of Antalya, Turkey from Wednesday 8th May to Sunday 12th May 2024 at the Maritim Pine Beach Hotel. Antalya is the gateway to Turkey’s southern Mediterranean region and is known for its beautiful Turquoise Coast, and yacht-filled old harbour. The region is full of gorgeous beaches and hidden caves. The shopping and the nightlife are exceptional. There are many opportunities to visit the many historical sites, museum spaces and waterparks. As we come out from the unprecedented social isolation of the last 2 years, we have a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with colleagues and make new friends as we enjoy a meeting full of educational events and social experiences.

The meeting has a great balance of science and recreation. It will include a series of current concepts and case-based lectures, along with debates on the controversies in trauma surgery. There will be an opportunity to learn from the “tips and tricks” seminars and the latest global research in the free papers and posters. There will also be a large exhibition area to experience the latest technological, pharmaceutical and imaging developments. Antalya also offers the opportunity to create everlasting memories as you organise your own unique adventures along the breathtaking coastline, picturesque waterfalls, ancient ruined monuments and Antalya’s old town.

Please mark your diaries. We look forward to seeing you there

Past President of Asia Pasific Trauma Society
