The BSACI 2015 Meeting was a great success and has received hugely positive feedback from all those involved.
Over the three days of the meeting, we welcomed speakers and delegates from all over the world, and were honoured to have Dr William Frankland MBE and Professor Barry Kay as guests at the meeting.
The programme covered a wide range of disciplines with some extremely popular Pro-Con debates, in addition to very well attended hands-on workshop sessions as part of the Allied Health and Primary Care programme on Saturday afternoon. The Celebrating Excellence In Allergy Care And Research Awards Ceremony honoured Professor Hasan Arshad with the Jack Pepys Award and Dr Adam Fox with the William Frankland Award. Congratulations also to the 6 recipients of the Barry Kay award.
As usual, the social events were very popular and offered a mixture of good food, great company and lots of fun as well as an opportunity for networking across the BSACI community. The Welcome Reception on the first night involved food from around the world, along with live music, casino tables and a disco, while the President’s Dinner, in a more formal setting at RAF Cosford amongst some of the RAF’s most famous fighter planes, also raised over £1300 for the Anaphylaxis Campaign and Allergy UK.
Once again we had terrific support from our sponsors, which this year included Nestle Health Science, Nutrica Advanced Medical Nutrition and Nutricia Early Life Nutrition (Platinum sponsors); Thermo Fisher Scientific (Gold sponsor); ALK, Mead Johnson and Meda Pharmaceuticals (Silver sponsors); and Shire and Stallergenes (Bronze sponsors).
