About the trade show
In 1930 a group of distinguished immunologists and clinicians saw the emergence of a blossoming new area in medicine and formed the Asthma Research Club, and later, in 1948, formed the British Association of Allergists. The first scientific meeting of the British Association of Allergists was held on January 24th 1948 at St. Mary's Hospital, London, with over 40 people attending. The scientific meeting was opened by a discussion by Dr John Freeman on the general subject to be discussed; ‘What is allergy?' It was in 1948 that the constitution and rules of the association were adopted.
By 1962 the Association decided to change its name to the British Allergy Society, and an interest in Allergy grew under the careful guidance of such distinguished members as Bill Frankland, Jack Pepys and Sir Cyril Clarke. Due to the increasing knowledge of the importance of immunology when dealing with allergic reactions, by 1973, the third and present name was thought to be more appropriate. Since 1973, the Society has been known as The British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
Over the past decades, there has been an explosion of interest in the immunological mechanisms of allergic disease. With this in mind, efforts have been made to increase the basic science input into the Society. This has led to an upsurge of interest in Allergy as a branch of Immunology and the recognition that the discipline embraces many subspecialties in medicine that were not previously well reflected in the Society. Recognising the confusion about Allergy and its causes among members of the public, the BSACI decided to set up special interest groups including paediatrics, ENT, dermatology and gastroenterology with the hope of promoting understanding of the contribution of Allergy to diseases within these disciplines and thus improve management.
In 1959, the Association organised a very successful 4th European Congress of Allergy. The sight of live colour television, seen for the first time by many delegates, which was used to demonstrate practical allergic procedures, was a new and exciting procedure. Since this time, the Society has been host to three further European congresses. In addition, regular regional meetings are arranged across the UK for primary and secondary care professionals to improve allergy management and initiate education focused on the community practice of this speciality.
The British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI) is pleased to invite you to their annual meeting taking place in Nottingham, UK, from 2-4 July, 2012. This year’s theme, “New Frontiers in Allergy,” will focus on new developments in diagnosis and management. There will be dedicated sessions on advances in molecular diagnosis presented by international specialists as well as topical discussions within the field of research and treatment. All aspects of allergy will be debated and analysed by well known speakers in a variety of forums, facilitating discussions and networking between delegates from all disciplines.
BSACI 2012 welcomes professionals such as clinical allergologists, immunologists, respiratory physicians, dermatologists, ENT surgeons, GPs with an interest in allergy and immunology, nurses, dieticians and paediatricians to this essential meeting.
