Social Programme

Conferences organised by BABCP have been well known not just for the quality of the scientific programme but also for the opportunity provided in the social programme for delegates to meet, socialise and enjoy themselves. The BABCP 2022 programme in London will enable us to returning to socialising and we will be ensuring that there will be plenty of opportunities to meet people in a relaxed and informal setting. Whether this is wining and dining together, dancing and partying into the early hours or just in a relaxed conversation at the end of a busy day, we know that the Conference will help forge new friendships and contacts.

We do hope that you will take advantage of the social programme we have put together for the Conference.
