Summer Meeting 2018

The 2018 BTS Summer Meeting will be held in the Renold Building at the University of Manchester on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 June 2018. 

Full Programme and online booking now available.


BTS has introduced two new prizes as part of the Summer Meeting programme.  These are open to all, including Allied Health Professionals, and will comprise poster presentations with prizes for shortlisted and winning presentations:-

  • BTS Prize for improving quality and excellence in patient care                   
  • BTS Prize for innovation in respiratory medicine 

We have also changed the way in which we seek applications for the Clinical Grand Round Prize which has been a valued event at the Summer Meeting over the last decade.   Open to specialty trainees and AHPs, applicants must now submit an abstract via the online system and the closing date has been brought forward slightly, as below.      

Please click here and read the instructions carefully before you submit your abstract to either the Abstract Prizes or Clinical Grand Round.  To submit your abstract you will need to log in, or register to use the website if you have not done so before. You will then need to follow the Abstract submission button to the right of this page. If you have any queries please contact at any point in the process.


  • Deadline for Abstract Prizes and Clinical Grand Round:  23:59 on Wednesday 4th April
  • All applicants informed of outcome:  w/c 23rd April
