Talks will be delivered by expert healthcare professionals in the field and individuals with bronchiectasis.

Talks are being planned in the following topic areas:
- Basics of bronchiectasis
- Treatment and self-management
- Latest research
The conference is free and open to anyone. All the talks will be in English but we aim to host some smaller discussion groups in different languages during the day. There will also be lots of opportunities to ask questions throughout the day.
Our bronchiectasis patient advisory group members are working closely with experts from EMBARC (European Multicentre Bronchiectasis Audit and Research Collaboration) to plan the event and to make sure that the talks are relevant to people with bronchiectasis.
We have a fantastic line-up of expert speakers. You can view the programme here. You are welcome to join for the whole day or just for the sessions you are most interested in.
Please feel free to promote the event - you can download the flyer here.
The event is being organised by the the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the ELF bronchiectasis patient advisory group who are working closely with experts from EMBARC (European Multicentre Bronchiectasis Audit and Research Collaboration).
