BACO International 2020

Jul 08th - All Day


BACO International 2020

Since its inaugural conference in 1963, the British Academic Conference of Otolaryngology (BACO) has become the UK’s largest academic ENT event, and the primary showcase of developments and advances in British and Irish Otolaryngology. BACO 2020 will be held in Birmingham, and will bring together some 2,000 ENT doctors, nurses, specialist consultants and care professionals for an exciting three-day programme of keynote, plenary and instructional, and live cadaveric sessions. Each of these events will be delivered by a rollcall of fantastic speakers and participants from across the UK and around the world, including the University of Cape Town’s Johan Fagan, Gigi Ostler of the University of Manitoba, Markus Hess from the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Luiz Kowalski of Universidade Federal do São Paulo, Harvard Medical School’s Reza Rahbar, Eben Rosenthal of the Stanford Cancer Center, and Sarah Wise of Emory University, Atlanta.

As well as keynote lectures by these and a host of other great speakers, the schedule will include a series of symposia on controversies, innovations, important topics and new developments; update sessions exploring the latest information on ENT surgery; a round-table discussion and panel on difficult cases; debates; lunch with the experts; instructional courses; video sessions exploring tips and tricks of surgery; live cadaveric sessions; a unique live musical session exploring the perception of music. There will also be an extensive trade exhibition and poster display, and unrivalled opportunities for networking and socialising with friends old and new.

It is also worth bearing in mind that the BACO executive have this year prioritised a reduced registration fee – those attendees who are BACO regulars will certainly notice the difference!
