The IPS annual conference showcases the largest infection prevention exhibition in the UK.

We were all disappointed not to deliver annual conference in 2020 but are looking ahead to Liverpool 2021 with the hope that we will be able to meet in September as planned. We are, of course, mindful of the ongoing pandemic and will continue to review and adjust plans if necessary. We are already provisioning for a hybrid element for 2021 to allow those who will be unable to join us physically and hope that you will save the date for IP2021!

The IPS exhibition hall is dedicated to infection prevention, showcasing innovative products and services from about 70 companies. Attendees enjoy exclusive exhibition hours each day to learn about new science, technologies, advances, and products that provide solutions to infection prevention challenges and strengthen infection prevention programs.

Collect quality leads from dedicated infection prevention and control professionals who are passionate about learning and improving their facilities with your products. IPS provides complimentary refreshments and lunch in the hall for attendees, so they don’t have to leave the convention centre. This allows them to maximise their time spent with exhibitors.

The IPS annual conference is the largest infection prevention and control exhibition in the UK and it is expected to attract over 500 professionals in this field. If you would like to attend the exhibition to view the exhibits this is free* of charge. *Please note this does not include any session attendance or catering.

For Those Exhibiting

Provision of an exceptional educational programme each year has led to the development and expansion of the IPS Conference, encouraging a larger and more varied audience. The audience is not only growing significantly in numbers, it is also changing in delegate profile and includes DIPCs, Microbiologists, Antibiotic Pharmacists, Managers as well as nursing leaders in Infection Prevention and Control. With the programme tailored to attract a wide audience, there will be up to four streams running each day catering for specific areas of interest. The 2021 programme is currently underway and will be available to view via the 'Programme' button above.
