I am delighted to announce the opening of registration for the 2017 APAGBI ASM in Bristol (7th-9th June 2017). The annual scientific meeting is the key CPD event in our calendar and is regularly attended by more than 250 members. After some feedback from the membership, we decided that we would try to refresh the Social format a little to take full advantage of the local attractions and allow delegates more freedom to meet and interact in a less formal fashion. We hope this will refresh the meeting, making it more attractive and providing better value for our colleagues.
The meeting will be over five venues in the centre of Bristol, occupy two and a half days and feature:
We have changed the format of the annual 'dinner’. The social event on the Thursday evening will be on the superb SS Great Britain in Bristol Harbour. This will be less formal (smart, not black tie) and we think, better value than the dinner and we hope will encourage a more social atmosphere. It will be sufficiently flexible to provide a whole evening’s entertainment at a superb venue or simply be a place for people to meet and catch up with colleagues from other centres or friends from previous jobs. We are sure this will enhance the delegates’ experience of the meeting. I look forward to welcoming you to Bristol in June, 2017.
