The 2021 Joint Conference of the Association of Reproductive & Clinical Scientists, British Fertility Society and the Society for Reproduction & Fertility will be coming to Liverpool in January 2021. The event has become the largest UK educational forum focusing on fertility and reproductive medicine.

The theme for the joint annual conference is ‘Barriers and breakthroughs‘ featuring an exciting, cutting edge programme of high profile, scientific international and UK speakers, with a wide range of concurrent sessions focusing on specialist areas in fertility and reproductive biology guaranteed to excite, stimulate and motivate!

The event will also feature over 200 scientific poster presentations, a large trade exhibition and a packed networking programme providing an excellent opportunity to learn, network and exchange ideas.


As with all planned conferences of late, we have to take into account the reality of COVID-19 and the restrictions this may impose on all of us with regards to large, face to face meetings. It goes without saying that we take this matter very seriously and are currently monitoring the developments of creating COVID secure environments for large gatherings. We will keep you up to date with any news as and when we are able to…. but for now, it’s very much ‘business as usual’.

Should it not be possible to run the conference as planned, we have been working in the background to ensure that we have some virtual options available, enabling us to continue in another way. Giving everyone the chance to engage and share some of the excellent work taking place in the community. If you have any immediate concerns please contact the conference organisers who will be happy to help.
