Social Programme
Conferences organised by BABCP are well known for the quality of the scientific programme and for the opportunity provided in the social programme for delegates to meet, socialise and enjoy themselves. The BABCP 2012 programme in London is designed to ensure that there will be plenty of opportunities to meet people in a relaxed and informal setting. Whether this is wining and dining together, dancing and partying into the early hours or just in a relaxed conversation at the end of a busy day, we know that the conference will help forge new friendships and contacts.

We do hope that you will take advantage of the social programme we have put together for the conference.
