The BACN are kicking off 2022 with a series of 14 Regional Meetings taking place nationwide.

These all-day meetings are made up of a networking lunch, peer to peer review, and feature talks and presentations from industry partners that work directly with the BACN. These talks can range from injectables and skin care to business support and insurance concerns. Regional meetings create a space for businesses to interact with aesthetic nurses and showcase new and innovative products, whilst BACN members learn about the latest developments happening in aesthetics today.

These events are totally free for members to attend, and guests are welcome to attend at a cost of £50. Members are encouraged to come along to as many events across the UK as they would like. The day is a fantastic opportunity to network with nurses in your local area, learn something you may not have already known, and feel just that little bit more connected after such a long time apart.

Excitingly, these will be the first meetings attended by many of our new regional leaders! There are limited spaces available for each location, so book soon to avoid disappointment.
