Welcome to the BERA Annual Conference 2019 which will be held at the University of Manchester, Tuesday 10th September 2019 – Thursday 12th September 2019.
It is a great pleasure to write my first welcome to a BERA Annual Conference. Manchester is known throughout the world as the birthplace of the industrial revolution with a proud of history in science, politics, music, arts and sport. The people of Manchester pride themselves on their warm welcome to visitors and so we look forward to returning to this vibrant, modern city.
BERA goes from strength to strength. Membership of BERA continues to grow. The range of activities of BERA has never been so rich and wide ranging. The Annual Conference also continues to grow and develop and is a great opportunity to disseminate research and network with like-minded colleagues. The success of BERA conference is a tribute to all involved, particularly the BERA office staff.
We look forward to seeing you in Manchester.
Dr Mhairi C Beaton
Conference and Events Committee Chair
