Annual Conference


Why Exhibit?

BBTS 2014 is a key date in the transfusion professionals' diary/calendar, not only for the educational programme and best practice advice but for the excellent networking opportunities with you our industry partners at the large exhibition and varied social events.

The BBTS Annual Conference is the UK's largest transfusion event.  An exciting series of lectures and educational sessions attract approximately 500 professionals from around the globe enabling us to offer you unrivalled access to the key players in the field of transfusion.

The purpose built exhibition hall is located next to the breakout rooms and auditorium with catering points and posters distributed around the hall.  This offers you excellent opportunities to share your expertise with the delegates during every break.  Your stand is a major show piece for the latest services and products you have on offer where you can gain direct feedback from the delegates on a one to one basis.
