Dear Potential Exhibitor,

Thank you to all those companies that attended the 103rd BAD Annual Meeting in Liverpool. The exhibition is an integral part of the BAD meeting and there was a real buzz of excitement in the exhibition hall, with some amazing stands and a lot of positive feedback.

The evaluation feedback has reflected our own impression that the meeting was a great success for delegates and exhibitors alike and we very much hope to build on that experience and make the 104th BAD Annual Meeting equally successful.

We are delighted to be returning to Manchester and the iconic Manchester Central venue. It last hosted our event in 2015 and was the proposed destination for what would have been our 100th Annual Meeting in 2020. The Exhibition is housed in Central 2 and the large space has enabled us to design an exhibition floorplan to accommodate more stands than we had in 2023. We will be looking to incorporate two session rooms within the exhibition hall to enable us to host 2 sponsored symposia each lunch time (as per 2023). We will also have our other feature areas including Hot Topics, well being zones, as well as seating and importantly all delegate catering with the exhibition hall.

The e-posters will be situated just outside the exhibition hall and we would encourage companies to submit abstracts for consideration for the main meeting (deadline 08/01/24), Special Interest Group sessions (05/02/24) and late breaking orals only (27/05/24). Further details can be found in the abstract section of this website.

The meeting format will be as an in-person event with educational sessions recorded and available on the post event virtual platform for 6 months. Those companies choosing to book a stand will be entitled to a FREE page on that virtual platform and on the in-person meeting app.

Details on other sponsorship opportunities, advertising, branding and sponsored symposia slots can be found on this page in the documents section.

We have a site visit planned for November 2nd 2023 at 11:30, please email the conference team at conference@bad.org.uk if you wish to attend.

The full exhibitor manual details will be sent to all companies that book a stand. Stand booking open on Tuesday November 7th at 11:00am. Please do not submit your booking form before that date and time as it will not be considered. Please note that stand space does sell very fast so please ensure you send a variety of options and we will try our best to secure your preferred choice of stand space.

Thank you again for your support of the meeting and we look forward to seeing you in Manchester.
