Novastep, Your foot & ankle company, cordially invites you to register, attend and participate in the 2019 Global Foot and Ankle Symposium (GFAS).
Next edition of GFAS will be held on March 29-30, 2019 in Annecy, the “little Venice of the Alps”. Nestled amongst the majestic French Alps and surrounded by stunning natural scenery lies the magical town of Annecy. Engulfed by the spectacular lake, Annecy is a place of dazzling natural beauty. Rich in history dating over 2000 years, this is none more evident than in the enchanting medieval heart of the old town, and by the glorious grand Chateau completed in 1565. The symposium will be held at the Imperial Palace Hotel Conference Center.
This symposium will provide a unique opportunity for the exchange of knowledge and dissemination of research findings throughout the international community. Attendees will benefit from an exceptional opportunity to share knowledge, experience and friendship. The academic program showcases a distinguished, international faculty of renowned foot and ankle experts, presiding over an agenda that features didactic lectures, practical exercises, case presentations and compelling point/counterpoint discussions that will bring to light the very best in state-of-the-art global clinical and scientific expertise.
