Conference CommitteeThe Conference Committee organises BAPO’s Annual Conference. This is the leading annual clinical forum and trade exhibition for prosthetics and orthotics in the United Kingdom. It attracts both UK and international delegates and exhibitors. Conference consists of 4 elements. Primarily it is an educational seminar with trade exhibition and social event. Opportunity is also taken for the Annual General Meeting at the same event. It is the ideal opportunity for those involved in all aspects of prosthetics and orthotics to learn from highly regarded speakers, seek the latest research, attend product demonstrations, take part in interactive workshops, discuss professional issues and meet with friends and colleagues.
