Update on Plans for OHC 2020

We know this is a very worrying time for many, both financially and professionally, and the BSDHT remains committed to helping members through this. 

The BSDHT team have been working hard behind the scenes and one issue that we have been discussing is the annual conference to be held in Glasgow at the end of November. After much debate we have decided that we would like to continue with the plans for it to go ahead.   We're optimistic that this will also be a great 'party' to look forward to at the end of a gloomy tunnel.

It will also be a time for you to visit the trade companies, as well as immerse yourself with fantastic speakers and many hands-on workshops.

We understand that many might be in a recovery period at work in the Autumn and so we have looked at how we can reduce the financial impact so that as many people as possible can still attend:

  • We are reducing the cost of the delegate ticket this year by removing the cost of lunches and offering cheaper options for delegates to purchase onsite or bring their own lunch. 
  • We will launch in May with a flash sale that gives a further £20 reduction off the already-discounted earlybird fee. This will run from 11-18 May. However, we are going to give the option to defer this registration – if you register your interest to book during that week then we will honour the same special offer fee if you decide to book your place in the summer. Look out for the launch of the programme and the flash sale on 11 May.
  • We will continue to run the option to pay in three instalments - a great way to spread the cost of your attendance. 
  • For those of you who have recently qualified or who are still studying, we will be running heavily discounted fees starting at less than £40. 
  • We are in talks with our commercial partners and supporters to fund a bursary scheme where applications can be made to receive a fully-funded place at the conference. 
  • We are working with Glasgow City to explore discounts their partners could offer on travel and other conference costs like taxis, restaurants and accommodation.

The programme is nearly complete and looks better than ever so we really hope that you will still be able to join us in November for that party and to be amongst our dental family again.
