2021 BCLA Virtual Clinical Conference and Exhibition
13 - 14 June 2021 

Conference programme to be delivered in two parts, including a 30 hour virtual conference - live streamed across the world!

The BCLA hosts the UK’s largest Clinical Conference and Exhibition dedicated to contact lenses and the anterior eye every 2 years. This highly regarded event will attract more than 1,000 UK and international contact lens professionals, at all stages of their career.

With all the uncertainty in recent months relating to face-to-face events due to the on-going pandemic, we are pleased to confirm that we will be hosting the 2021 BCLA Clinical Conference and Exhibition in a virtual format in June 2021 and in Autumn 2021.

The first event will be live-streamed 30 hours across the globe, enabling our international audiences to tune in to the event when its convenient for them. This will be followed by a virtual event in the Autumn, featuring both a face-to-face event (subject to government restrictions) and online sessions. The split format will allow for better planning and attendance as we go into another year with unclear travel restrictions and potential disruption.

Whatever your level of experience or work setting, the BCLA Virtual Clinical Conference and Exhibition offers you a platform to learn from the experts, to network and develop your skills and knowledge, as well as source ideas and suppliers that will tangibly improve your business.
