Welcome Message - Hong Kong SAR

Congress Chair and Course Director


Welcome to Hong Kong, a leading international city with a sophisticated fusion of East and West Culture!

It has come again to another season of harvest for the academic arena of Rhinology, Anterior Skull Base, Rhinoplasty and Sleep Apnea. I am happy to announce that Rhinology World Congress – Hong Kong 2017, in conjunction with the 36th Congress of International Society of Inflammation and Allergy of the Nose (ISIAN) and the 18th Congress of the International Rhinologic Society (IRS), will be hosted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong College of Otorhinolaryngologists and Hong Kong Society of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery on 1st -3rd September 2017. We have also prepared pre-congress workshops on 31st August to deepen our academic exchange.

The bouquets of free paper sessions, keynote sessions, poster sessions and conference dinner are exhibiting both the virtuality and reality in that Rhinology World Congress – Hong Kong 2017 can only be unique among its predecessors. Sniff, smell and breathe together with us in Hong Kong!
