There is no other event like the MS Trust conference!
The MS Trust conference is a fantastic event for MS health professionals to come together to learn, share expertise and focus on improving care for everyone affected by MS. Conference provides an opportunity for MS teams to update their knowledge on the latest developments in MS care and treatment and to network with other health professionals who share a special interest in MS.
The MS Trust annual conference was postponed in November 2020 but we are keeping the original, fantastic programme and will be bringing the conference to you as a fully virtual event. This gives us an amazing opportunity to extend the invitation to even more health professionals as we are not limited by physical space.
The conference programme has some great sessions and we are making sure that there will be plenty of opportunities for virtual networking within the conference platform including a virtual coffee bar, 2D exhibition, and of course the famous MS Trust quiz and disco.
All of the Pharma industry will be there to provide a unique opportunity to engage with the sponsored symposia and the chance to talk with Pharma throughout the conference. Live events with Pharma during the weeks after Conference will also be arranged for delegates. In addition all sessions will be available to view by delegates for 3 months after the Conference.
Registration has now closed.
