After the success of the 2024 ASM in Belfast, the BSGE has invited expressions of interest to host BSGE ASMs in 2026 and 2027. Launching the application process, Meetings Convener and Council Representative Sujata Gupta said:

‘As we now look forward to visiting Leeds in 2025 for BSGE Annual Scientific Meeting, the time has come to submit bids to host the BSGE ASMs in 2026 and 2027.
‘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 2026 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.
‘We are interested in as much practical detail as you can provide and 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 to host a successful meeting is a great badge of honour and gives you the opportunity to showcase your own department, hospital and locality.

Anyone interested should complete the application form linked here: ASM Expression of Interest form.

All expressions of interest should be submitted to by 30th September 2024. One  of the BSGE Officers would be more than happy to discuss applications with members  personally, so get in touch with any questions or queries.
