Professional Development * Education & Events * Conferences * Annual Conference * Annual-Conference-Highlights

The 2018 Annual Conference was our largest to date with over 2,000 attendees from the UK and overseas, and our biggest ever exhibition featuring 50+ exhibitors and more than 300 posters. Held at the ICC in Liverpool, the fantastic 3 day programme included sessions for the whole MDT, presentations from world renowned keynote speakers and an exciting social programme.

“The BSR Annual Conference provides an excellent combination of high-quality educational sessions, special interest groups, exhibits and networking opportunities. If I were limited to only one conference in a year, I would attend this one!”

“The BSR conference inspires and leads, it makes you feel good to work in Rheumatology”

“The BSR meeting in Liverpool was the best ever with great speakers, superb knowledge and practice updates and networking opportunities”

“This conference will change my practice significantly which is an outcome that far exceeded my expectations. Really informative and stimulating thanks BSR!”
