Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

It is truly an honor to host Asia-Pacific Pediatric Airway Conference in South Korea for the year of 2023, and we gladly invite all of you to join us at Incheon South Korea from March 3rd to 5th, 2023. First of all, we would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation, as this conference would not have been possible without your continual support and interest.

7th Asia-Pacific Pediatric Airway Conference program consists of lectures on a variety of topic—pediatric airway, recurrent respiratory papillomatosis, laryngotracheal stenosis, decannulation, congenital airway problem, anesthetic management for pediatric airway, and others—for two days (March 3rd and 4th), followed by a hands-on course on pediatric tracheostomy, laryngotracheal reconstruction, partial cricotracheal resection, and slide tracheoplasty on the last day (March 5th). As you can see, the conference will cover a broad range of learning opportunities based on outstanding clinical experiences and research. Pediatric airway disease is not just an otolaryngologic problem, and the program was organized including experts in various fields such as pediatrics and anesthesiology as well as outstanding surgeons from all of the world.

The conference will not only provide the best platform for education, but also allow participants to extend networks, renew friendships, and discuss current and future research ideas on pediatric airway. We hope that all of you will have a productive and pleasurable time at this conference. Although the worldwide pandemic is existent and still makes it difficult for some of you to attend, we firmly believe that our passion for pediatric airway may overcome these limitations.

We look forward to meeting you at the conference in person, and wish the best for a successful meeting. Thank you, in advance, for all of your support and participation.
