HCA Conference 2024

Following the success of the HCA Annual Conference in 2023, we are thrilled to announce the sessions for the 2024 HCA Annual Conference.

Similar to last year, we will now be running 2 hybrid events in June, with one taking place in London and the other in Manchester.

We have a series of inspiring speakers and topics lined up for you, all specially tailored for people working within healthcare communications.  We will be exploring new thinking, stimulating debate and challenging previously held beliefs.  

Please find below the list of conference events in 2024.  Please note, registrations will open for these sessions as and when faculty speakers have been confirmed.
