The British Orthodontic Society has announced that this year’s British Orthodontic Conference, to be held in the iconic Midland Hotel in Manchester on September 16-18, 2021, will be the event’s first ever hybrid offering.
Following such an unusual year, the BOS would like to invite everyone with an interest in orthodontics – consultants, specialists, training grades, GDPs, therapists and nurses – to come along, listen to a fantastic programme live, visit Manchester, socialise, and meet friends and colleagues again.
The hybrid element event will allow those delegates who can’t travel, or overseas delegates, to be able to register and access the BOC lecture programme virtually, as well as attend a virtual trade exhibition and network with colleagues online.
The conference features a tremendous programme that includes Phil Hammond (Private Eye’s “M.D.”, physician, broadcaster, comedian and commentator on health issues), and the prestigious Northcroft Lecture will be presented by BOS president, Professor Jonathan Sandler. There will also be parallel sessions ‘Driving private practice’, ‘So you want to know about orthodontics’ for aspiring Orthodontists, and a two-day DCP programme.
David Waring, chair of the British Orthodontic Conference Committee said, “We were so disappointed not to have a conference in 2020 and we have worked extremely hard to deliver a conference in 2021 that is doubly good! Everyone can book with confidence – if we have to make any changes or hold a purely virtual event, you will always be able to transfer to the online event and get the appropriate refund.
We recognise the importance of flexibility when it comes to plans and hope this provides the reassurance colleagues need. We feel that we have something for all the team at this year’s conference and look forward to welcoming everyone.”
Registration will open at the start of May for the 2021 British Orthodontic Conference – follow the BOS on Facebook (@BritishOrthodonticSociety) or Twitter and Instagram (@bosbraces) for updates, or visit www.bos.org.uk/News-and-Events/Events-Meetings to find out more and to book.
An early bird discount will be available for all bookings made before July 23, and a combined team rate is on offer too so that the whole team can attend.
