‘The biggest and best yet’ – IBMS Congress hailed a success

Pathology in Practice editor Andy Myall presents a quick wrap up of the 2023 IBMS Congress, including some thoughts on the event and the Institute’s key activities from Chief Executive David Wells.

IBMS Chief Executive David Wells was unequivocal in hailing the 2023 Congress a success, calling it: “The biggest and best yet.” The Institute’s major biennial event made a triumphant return to its regular September slot, after the 2021 event was pushed into spring 2022 by the long tail of the COVID-19 pandemic. The four days saw an impressive 3,200 delegates attend, joined by around 1,000 people present for the trade show, generating a buzz across the duration.

The educational programme – heavily featured across previous issues of Pathology in Practice – was a major learning opportunity, with in excess of 400 presentations across 19 topics. These included all the disciplines within laboratory science, as well as plenary sessions, a programme for biomedical support staff, and further programmes covering politics, wellbeing, education and training, as well as quality and management.
