UPDATE: Information on Coronavirus

13 March 2020

In light of the rapidly changing coronavirus situation, Beat and the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ Faculty of Eating Disorders regret to announce that the Eating Disorders International Conference will NOT be taking place as planned at the University of Strathclyde on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 March 2020.

We have been monitoring the COVID 19 developments closely and continuously and while we have been making every possible adjustment to ensure we could continue with the event, we must put the health and safety of our attendees first and not put any further strain on the medical profession at this unprecedented time.

It is not a decision we have taken lightly and we recognise it will impact those planning to attend as well as Beat as a charity. We understand you will have questions about this decision and we ask for your understanding here; our conference team will now have a great deal of work to do following this decision. We will be sending a further communication next week including information about refunds, and we hope you will bear with us until then, while we take the necessary logistical steps, and while we communicate this news to all affected.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.

This year, we’ve introduced a new ticket bracket for foundation year doctors, nurses, health professionals, psychologists, and researchers. We have also significantly reduced the undergraduate student ticket price for 2020.

Please note, the discounted prices are for the full, two day ticket.

Full-time undergraduate students will be asked for proof of student status when registering onto the conference. Failure to provide this will mean we cannot offer you a place on the conference. We may also ask for proof of student ID onsite.

Registration fee includes:

  • Access to all the relevant sessions. So if you have purchased a full conference ticket you can access all sessions from both days. If you have purchased a one day pass, you can only access all sessions on that day.
  • Entry to the exhibition area
  • Morning and afternoon coffee, tea, and pastries.
  • Lunch
