Here’s what previous delegates have said about our flagship event...

 “I would encourage all members of the Society to attend the annual conference.  It is an opportunity to hear about new ideas and research in psychology and engage in stimulating discussion with peers, all within a friendly and supportive atmosphere.”

 “As a frequent attendee of psychological conferences at home and abroad, I always find the BPS Annual Conference to be among the most intellectually stimulating, clinically informative, and socially delightful.”
