Benefits of attending

We know our delegates have different reasons for attending conference. 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 with a packed and informative programme, featuring international content that highlights essential topics, and 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 exhibition space at the Harrogate Convention Centre with suppliers and and exhibitors providing demonstrations of their products and services. Take a closer look at the latest technological advancements and developments in person.
