Delegate registration for RPC24 now open!

CloserStill Media, organiser of Respiratory Professional Care exhibition and conference today announced online delegate registration for this year's event is now open.

Celebrating its fifth year and taking place 9-10 October 2024 at NEC Birmingham, Respiratory Professional Care, remains a free education, networking, and sourcing event for UK-registered healthcare professionals in the field of respiratory medicine.

Consisting of three theatres and a brand-new poster zone, the programme will explore everything to support the sustainable recovery of respiratory services, from early and accurate diagnosis, service innovation and tackling health inequalities, to long Covid, severe asthma, COPD, Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD), and pulmonary rehabilitation.

The exhibition floor at Respiratory Professional Care presents the UK's largest showcase of products, innovations, and solutions for elevating the provision of respiratory medicine within secondary care, with more than 75 companies on hand to demonstrate how your department can increase efficiencies and improve patient outcomes.

Commenting on today's announcement, Liam Richardson, Content Director at CloserStill Media said, "in recognition of the absolute stellar line up as part of this year's programme, plus the depth and breadth of content on offer, we've taken the positive step to open delegate registrations earlier than ever before to ensure everyone can get their free delegate ticket and book their study leave. "Whilst we're not quite ready to release the full programme, we're happy to tease you with a snapshot of keynote speakers already confirmed," he added.
