“This was my second time at GulfThoracic 2018 like the first time, I benefited immensely from pre-conference workshop. It was ultrasound in the Chest last time and Pulmonary Function test this time. Thereafter, I spent the next day and half in the Thoracic Surgery Session which had very high quality presentation as well as high academic level of discussions. The discussions during my presentation were also very stimulating.
Additionally, your hospitality and your personal attention to minutes of detail are legendary. Very few will be able to match you.
Thanks for making me a part of this important academic event in the Global Chest Disease Calendar.”

"I attended the GulfThoracic Congress 2018 in Dubai as invited speaker, participating both in the Thoracic Surgery Forum and in the Medical Student Forum. The organization and logistics of the congress were excellent, in a superb location. The choice of the topics was of great interest, covering both super-technological presentations and practical and social presentations dealing with everyday practice including management of war thoracic injuries. The atmosphere during the sessions was relaxed and a lot of proactive discussion after each talk greatly enhanced the quality of the presentations. The hospitality was amazing, with a friendly environment and plenty of great moments to remember. Overall, the scientific committee needs to be congratulated for this exciting congress gathering people from all over the world in a fantastic city and with a high scientific standard for the thoracic community. Definitely worth being replicated next year!!"
