Represent your profession

volunteer hands

We need your help to promote and profile your profession at a variety of public and industry events. Find out about the opportunities below

In addition to receiving discounted attendance at BDA main events, BDA Live, BDA Vision and Research Symposium, members also have the chance to represent their profession at various external events.

Each year the BDA attend a number of industry relevant conferences and exhibitions in order to promote dietetics, our members, membership to the Association, Specialist Groups and Branches.

Usually BDA Office staff ‘man’ the stand during the show but we love members to be involved and represent the profession!

We arrange your registration to the conference in return for half day on the stand. (Times are either morning or afternoon - time to be agreed in advance)

We are unable to cover travel and/or accommodation cost or any other related costs BUT there are benefits for you attending and being on the BDA Stand.

  • Promote your profession
  • Network with a range of profession and the public
  • Specialist Groups promote their Membership and gain new Members or event attendees
  • Branches to enthuse Members to be more proactive within their branch.

You will only be required to be on the stand for half a day, you then have the rest of the day to be part of the event.
