Benefits of attending
We know our delegates all have different reasons for attending. For some, it will be to access 19 hours of CPD in one place; for others, it is a chance to watch the latest cutting-edge clinical updates and sessions. Above all, it is a place to meet with fellow podiatrists as one community.
From speakers to workshop sessions - the annual conference is the ideal opportunity for delegates to gain different perspectives. Get the latest updates and technological advances in podiatry and a packed and informative programme; featuring international content that highlights essential topics, encompassing clinical practice, business innovation and research from a global community of podiatrists.
Gain up to 19 hours of CPD across the three days. Not only is attending the annual conference an ideal opportunity to get the hours you need to complete your HCPC audit, but it’s also an opportunity to hear the latest clinical updates from a range of areas. The annual conference lays on a mixture of sessions and workshops so that you can return to your practice or service with new ways of working.
Book your concurrent sessions and workshops to meet your professional needs. Take the time to explore our 3,567sqm exhibition space at the ACC Liverpool with suppliers and exhibitors providing demonstrations of their products and services. Take a closer look at the latest technological advancements and developments in person.

Always something new to learn
This conference is a must
What I really enjoyed
All the talks were relevant and beneficial to my practice, which was great, but what I really enjoyed was networking with other podiatrists and health professionals, and ultimately learning from others.
It fuels enthusiasm
There are always key pieces of learning that can be taken away and implemented straight into clinical practice. It fuels enthusiasm in practitioners meaning better service for patients. Always delivers.
I left feeling refreshed and motivated
