The BCLA Clinical Conference and Exhibition is returning to Manchester next year – with the city set to play host to one of the profession’s most eagerly anticipated events. Eye care professionals have been urged to pencil in June 11 to 13 2021 in their diaries, with the three-day event once again promising to be one of the highlights of the optical calendar. BCLA President Jonathon Bench said: “We are thrilled to be heading back to Manchester Central for the 2021 Clinical Conference and Exhibition. It promises to be a weekend to remember, featuring a host of passionate speakers who can inspire eye care professionals to make a real difference to patients’ lives. The event is expected to attract delegates from around the world, culminating in the BCLA Awards Dinner held at Manchester Cathedral. Registration is due to open in early 2021. The BCLA Fellowship Viva’s will be held during the clinical conference, and submissions for this award will open from September 2020.
