Our 2017 conference entitled 'LIVING TO YOUR FULL POTENTIAL' will take place on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 March 2017 at the Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport.  

In addition to presentations by two of the United Kingdom’s most renowned liposuction experts, Mr Alex Munnoch and Miss Anne Dancey, there will be a trio of Lipoedema experts from the Netherlands, and a host of other speakers to educate and inform you. The topics will include Lymphatics, Nutrition, Supplements and Compression and there will be workshops galore on the programme - from aqua-aerobics to dance. This is certain to be our best conference yet and you will leave feeling empowered and educated. There will also be an Eastern surprise!

Make sure you book for our "Spring Fling" event on the Saturday night too. Six inspirational women will strut their stuff on the catwalk. And there will be dancing and rock 'n roll lined up too.

Although mainly aimed at people with Lipoedema and their partners, family and carers we welcome professionals too who want to educate themselves on Lipoedema. We have created a range of tickets so you can can participate in the conference as your time permits. Buy your tickets now below:
