It’s been nearly five years, but the eagerly awaited BSAC Conference is back, and the date is set for Saturday 19 October. 

Plans are underway to build on the success of the last conference in 2019 which was a sellout with more than 800 members attending. This year’s event will be back with more of what members love - an impressive speaker line up, breakout sessions and plenty of networking opportunities – all in the top-rated (by previous delegates) venue, The Vox at the NEC, Birmingham.

BSAC CEO Mary Tetley who is overseeing the event said:

We have missed seeing our branches and members face to face at the conference, it is long overdue and  we are really looking forward to it. It will be a jam-packed day; members really don’t want to miss this!

Here’s what members said after the last event:  

Overall a brilliant event, keep up the good work and I look forward to the next. You kept me and my 15-year-old (also a diver) engaged all day. THANK YOU
I thought the whole event was something of a triumph for BSAC generally. 
This was our first conference, we found it informative, inspirational and professional. We loved it. Free parking was a great bonus.
