Nottingham gears up to major paediatric surgery conference

We are delighted to have supported the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons (BAPS) to bring their 66th annual international congress to Nottingham, boosting the local business visitor economy. Established in 1953, BAPS endeavours to raise standards in paediatric surgery through education and research, and its annual international congress will welcome around 300 visitors to Nottingham between 3rd and 5th July.

The event will be based at the East Midlands Conference Centre (EMCC), set within the University of Nottingham’s campus – the UK’s greenest university campus. The team have provided support to identify the East Midlands Conference Centre and other suitable conference venues, helped to arrange accommodation for the delegates, created leaflets offering discounts with local businesses, and will also offer a service at the conference to ensure delegates make the most of their stay in Nottingham.

BAPS had its inaugural scientific meeting in London in 1953. Since then, the meeting has become an annual event and has been held in many locations both in the UK and overseas, offering paediatric surgeons from around the world networking opportunities to meet and discuss work.

The packed 2019 programme includes a full day for Trainees on Tuesday, two post-graduate symposia on Oncology and Colorectal surgery, an Education session, a Global Surgery slot and a session on Transitional Care.  On Friday BAPS will be co-hosting the Adult General Surgeons with an interest in Paediatric Surgery.  There will also be an extended version of the Learning Lab which will be open to all delegates.

We have also made recommendations to the visitors for things to do during their stay, including restaurants, bars, shopping, sightseeing and guided tours which can be enjoyed during their free time.

We look forward to welcoming all delegates to the city.
