Why you should exhibit 

The Diabetes UK Professional Conference (DUKPC) attracts over 3,000 healthcare professionals, researchers and scientists all with an interest in tackling the diabetes crisis.

Our programme is packed with inspiring speakers who will cover a wide range of topics from the latest research breakthroughs through to developments in care and support for people living with or affected by diabetes. Our exhibition hall also offers an opportunity for all delegates to network with peers and colleagues from across the world, sharing their experiences and learn from each other.

Alongside our conference, we’re hosting our Primary Care Course to help primary care professionals further their knowledge of diabetes and its treatments. We’re also holding Diabetes UK Professional Conference: Insider on Saturday, 9th March. This one day event is for people living with or affected by diabetes. It gives them a chance to hear keynote speakers directly from the main conference. 

With more than 4.6 million people living with diabetes and a further 12.3 million people at increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes there has never been a more important time to come together and help change lives. 

Join us in Liverpool in March 2019.
