Overview

Reimagined for 2020, the Case-based Conference brought together 500+ delegates for BSR's first online conference, featuring, for the first time, both adult and paediatric and adolescent content.

We had a packed two days of excellent sessions, case discussions with expert overview, ePosters, sponsored content and plenty of audience participation with live polling and Q&As.

If you didn't attend, you can still get involved: we're holding Twitter Poster Clubs on:

  • 1 December, 19:00, focusing on epidemic rheumatology with case reports EP10 and EP13

  • 8 December, 19:00, Sjögren's syndrome and sarcoidosis with case reports EP18 and EP35.

Highlights

  • 500+ delegates registered

  • Up to 95% of the audience watched live

  • 53k+ Twitter impressions for #CBC20

  • 100% of delegates would recommend it to a colleague

  • 99% of delegates would attend another BSR conference online
