The BSGE annual scientific meeting 2024 is coming to Northern Ireland for the first time! This exciting meeting will take place in Belfast on 2nd and 3rd May 2024 with pre-congress events on 1st May.

You will be welcomed to a beautiful, modern and resurgent harbour city. Belfast thrived as an industrial city, known for shipbuilding and it is the birth place of the Titanic. It is also known for the production of linen, paving the way for the world’s linen industry and was nicknamed Linenopolis. Pointing to our maritime roots, the city’s symbol is the seahorse and this remains on the city coat of arms. Belfast is a city on the rise and is a place that will look after sponsors and delegates like family. You will have access to a rich cultural heritage with lots to see and do around the city.

Our conference theme echoes the Olympic motto of Faster, Higher, Stronger – Together. Remembering some of the conflict the city has endured we host a session on the impact of the Troubles on women’s health in the city while looking forward to the future with a broad programme including sessions on efficiency, innovation, resilience and multidisciplinary working.

ASM 2024 will be held at the ICC Belfast, an award-winning venue in the heart of the city centre with a reputation for innovation and delivering world class event experiences. Having secured exclusive access to this venue, ASM 2024 will be able to offer an increased scientific programme as well as a large exhibition space and event space. The conference centre’s location is within easy walking distance of a large number of excellent hotels, restaurants, bars and sights of interest.

Belfast has excellent links to the mainland UK and Ireland. Northern Ireland itself has three airports, sea crossings from England and Scotland, and a direct rail link from Dublin. It is possible to fly direct to Belfast from over 20 European cities and a number of North American locations. And once you arrive, you’ll find it’s just as easy to get around as it was to get here. A safe and walkable city centre allows easy rambling around the city with great bus and rail options if you wish to go further afield.

You’ll find an endless array of things to do in Belfast. From world-class attractions, historic landmarks, museums, shopping and entertainment venues, to walking, coach, taxi and bike sightseeing tours.

As the gateway to Northern Ireland Belfast is perfectly positioned for sightseeing tours to Giant’s Causeway, Game of Thrones filming locations and road trips beyond Belfast.

For ASM 24 we have not forgotten the social aspect of the meeting and have arranged a number of opportunities to meet with colleagues and enjoy the city, we invite you to our BSGE BBQ night and RIGS dinner held in the historic Half Bap / cathedral quarter area. Delegates will meet in the historic New Orpheus bar where there will be craic, music and laughs aplenty.

We offer a truly exceptional gala dinner experience as the social highlight of the BSGE year. Taking place in the historic Titanic building you will be met with a drinks reception, with access to the amazing Titanic museum galleries before sitting down to a sumptuous meal. After dining in first class, we look forward to dancing in steerage!

The council and local organising committee look forward to meeting you all for the 2024 Annual Scientific Meeting in the city of Belfast.
