9 January-30 June 2021
Virtual BACO International


General Information

The Executive Committee has taken the decision to convert BACO International 2021 to a fully virtual online format, making it the first-ever virtual BACO conference!
Our principal purpose in doing this has been to ensure the safety of our delegates, speakers, and staff. There are other benefits - hosting BACO International virtually will enable us to greatly reduce the cost to attendees, including the registration fee. In doing so we hope to open the event up to a much wider field of participants both in the UK and around the world, ensuring that BACO International really lives up to its name!
The virtual conference will take place over 3 days from Sunday 10 January to Tuesday 12 January 2021. After the official dates, the programme content will be available to watch on-demand for 6 months - until 30 June 2021. Please note that engagement and messaging tools will be disabled after a period of 4 weeks.
The official language is English.
The next BACO International will take place in Birmingham, 15-17 February 2023.


If you registered previously, you should have automatically received a refund of your registration fees from ENT UK. If you have not received a refund or have any questions please contact baco@entuk.org.
ENT UK will provide certificates of attendance after completion of an online evaluation. After the live dates, certificates of attendance will be issued monthly on the last working day of each month until the platform closes at the end of June 2021.
The early bird registration deadline is Sunday 15 November 2020. Please visit our registration page HERE for detailed information regarding registration fees.

Sponsorship / Exhibition

Due to the change in the format of the conference from in-person to virtual, we cannot fulfil bookings made for the event in Birmingham. ENT UK has put together a list of comprehensive sponsorship packages for the virtual conference, therefore, you can amend your booking to take up one of our new options. If you would prefer not to attend, we will, of course, provide you with a refund of any fees paid prior to the rescheduling.
Excellent, we cannot wait to welcome you. Please click HERE for further information or contact baco@entuk.org.
Just like an in-person BACO International, we will provide exhibitors and sponsors with a comprehensive technical manual detailing how to plan for the event and how-to set-up your virtual stand space. This information will be circulated in November 2020.
Processing. Please wait.
