The Asia Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) has identified a bogus website promoting its 35th Congress, to be held from to 22 – 26 April 2020 in Xiamen, China.
The bogus website (apao2020.org) has no relationship with the APAO or the Congress.
The APAO has stated, “We need to urgently clarify that the Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology (APAO) has no relationship whatsoever with this website, or the congress that it represents. We would need to urgently warn all potential delegates and sponsors not to use this website.
“Our official website for our APAO 2020 Congress remains at https://2020.apaophth.org/. Please do also look for the registered trademark (Asia-Pacific Academy of Ophthalmology Congress® and APAO Congress®) on any communications related to our APAO Congress.”
