About the Conference

With eighteen successful conferences under its belt (going all the way back to 1963, in Oxford), the British Academic Conference of Otolaryngology has long been the event that, more than any other, showcases the best of British and Irish Otolaryngology. With an increasingly global outlook, BACO today is a major international meeting, with worldwide participation and a world-class programme of academic content, covering the full breadth of our specialty.
