Annual Conference and Cutting Edge Laryngology meetings: Research, focus, innovation

The BLA holds its Annual Meeting and Cutting Edge Laryngology conference in alternate years.

In 2016, the Cutting Edge Laryngology conference will be held at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, London, UK, 5-7 October 2016.


This leading conference continues the BLA's previous celebrations of innovation in our wonderful field, and draws once again upon those who are really pushing the boundaries. There will be talks from inspiring leaders in fields including airway reconstruction and tissue engineering, revolutionary approaches to dysphagia and voice care, and a special session devoted to the most cutting-edge of speech and swallowing therapy. Practical sessions will introduce participants to the latest office procedures, and videos to OR advances.

On Thursday 5 November 2015, the BLA held a well attended Annual Meeting and AGM at The Royal College of Surgeons of England. We attracted over 150 participants including ENT Consultants, Laryngologists, Trainees, Speech and Language Therapists and Allied Health Professionals discussing the latest advances in research and technology.  We were delighted to welcome both Prof Shaheen Hamdy and Prof Daniel Sifrim as our Keynote Speakers. 

The quality of accepted abstracts was excellent. Congratulations to the David Howard Prize Winners 2015:
