The 67th CIDESCO World Congress, hosted by CIDESCO USA from September 19 to 23, 2019, was a huge success and one of the largest World Congresses, with delegations from 23 countries around the world. Spa and wellness professionals came for advanced education, lectures, and the latest on industry technology on display.
The five-day event held meetings with CID ESCO examiners, schools, a general assembly, and expo. Newly elected CIDESCO International President, Sandy Fuhr of Cape Town, South Africa, and Anna-Cari Gund, immediate CIDESCO International past president, were among special guests, along with CIDESCO diplomats, board of directors, delegates, and associate members. “For me, the 67th CIDESCO World Congress was educational, inspiring, and a call for action,” said Lydia Sarfati, chairman of CIDESCO Section USA and Repechage founder and CEO. “Through this gathering of education and business leaders in aesthetics, it is clear that our greatest work and challenge, as we move forward into the 21st Century, is to continue to develop and elevate educational standards both in the United States and all around the world.”
“What an incredibly fun weekend of professional comradeship with fellow beauty and skin therapists from all over the world,” said Mark Lees, MD, World Congress educator, CIDESCO diplomat and Mark Lees Skin Care founder and CEO. “The administrative team of CIDESCO USA and chair Lydia Sarfati are to be commended for a well-planned, exciting, and informative event!”
