Update: BASES 2020 annual conference

22nd May 2020


In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the limited government guidance on safe social distancing measures for mass gatherings, and the unlikelihood of any vaccine by this autumn, the BASES Board and the Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) have met and have decided to postpone this year’s annual conference, which was planned for 17-18 November 2020.

We appreciate how disappointing this will be, but feel it is the right decision to make with the information we have.

We are working with the SPC to plan what alternative CPD options we could deliver in November, and will provide an update to the membership as soon considerations are advanced.

The Board fully believe in a face to face conference and we aim to be back again in November 2021 with another quality conference opportunity.

Thank you for your understanding with this difficult decision in what are truly extraordinary times.

Kind Regards

The BASES Board
