We are delighted to invite you to the 2021 British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology Conference. For 2021 we are aiming to return to the Harrogate Convention Centre in the heart of this popular Yorkshire town, for a three-day conference starting on Thursday the 7th of October.
Despite the global events of 2020 which have massively changed the way we live and work, there is still an unwavering effort to improve our understanding of the scientific basis and clinical impact of allergic disease. Our 2021 Annual Conference focuses on new insights in the uniqueness of allergic responses at different ages and the benefits of targeted treatments throughout life, and will highlight key developments in national allergy initiatives and guidelines. This year we also celebrate the innovation of novel allergy education strategies, we reflect on the impact of COVID-19 on allergy services across the UK, and we start the discussion about adapting our practice to tackle the challenges of this new era.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to Harrogate Convention Centre this October.
This year’s annual conference will look a little different to previous years. The safety of delegates is our priority and we are working with Harrogate Convention Centre to ensure we make the conference as safe as possible for everyone. As well as taking measures including the provision of hand sanitiser, social distancing markers and deep cleaning of the venue, we require delegates to be double vaccinated or have taken a lateral flow test which is negative. Delegates will need to have been vaccinated at least 14 days prior to attending the Annual Conference which you can demonstrate via the NHS App, or show a negative lateral flow test within 48 hours of the conference. We will continue to keep you updated on all the safety measures so you feel reassured that the conference will be as safe as possible.
