As the BSGE looks forward to finally visiting Manchester in 2023 for the Annual Scientific Meeting, the time has come to submit bids to host the BSGE ASMs in 2024 and 2025. BSGE President Andrew Kent said:

‘The BSGE is now bigger than ever and needless to say our conferences have grown correspondingly. Successful bids will be supported by the full resources of the BSGE and planning starts early.

‘Whilst, it is a considerable commitment to run an ASM, the BSGE has a well-structured and experienced team to help you organise and plan the meeting.  We are looking for an energetic local organising committee to take on the challenge for 2024 or the following year.  If this is for you and your colleagues, please complete application form explaining your plans if you were awarded the opportunity. At this stage it is not essential to have all the details for the conference venue, but please complete the other sections.’

Applicants should provide as much practical detail as they can, together with some demonstration of previous experience at organising significant events.  Enthusiasm is key but commitment, and ability to complete tasks in a timely manner are vital, as it will involve considerable effort over the year leading up to the meeting.  However, there are great benefits to organising the ASM. Andrew Kent said:

To host a successful meeting is a great badge of honour and gives you the opportunity to showcase your own department, hospital and locality.’

Please submit application to by 30th September 2022.

If you would like to talk through a proposed application, one of the Officers would be more than happy to discuss it with you personally.
