2024 Annual Scientific Meeting

Dates: 9th to 10th September 2024
Venue: The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester


Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

Following on from the success of our 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting in Aberdeen, we would like to invite you to our 2024 meeting in Manchester. The meeting will be held at the Bridgewater Hall in the centre of Manchester – the home of the Hallé Orchestra. Manchester is very easy to access by car, train or even tram, and Manchester Airport is well connected with the city centre. There is a wide selection of hotels within walking distance of the venue, and a plethora of excellent restaurants. The annual dinner will take place amongst the exhibits within the Manchester Museum right in the historic centre of the University.

This will be our first visit to Manchester, which is of course home to two Premier League football clubs, but is also a major cultural hub and has a number of excellent museums. We will also be trialling a revised programme spread over two full days, which is something that we haven’t done for several years, but we will be maintaining the breadth of the meeting and the number of oral presentations will remain the same.  This year we will be having a focus on novel antihypertensive therapies, including the newer weight loss drugs, and I am delighted that Professor Sadaf Farooqi FRS will be giving the Pickering lecture. Above all, we are looking forward to sharing this time with our members and distinguished guests. We hope that you will be able to join us and share this experience with us.

We look forward to welcoming you to Manchester!


 Professor Ian Wilkinson, President & Dr James Sheppard, Secretary
