News & events Events Exhibiting at the Action Duchenne International Conference 2018 Thank you all for such a truly outstanding conference. It was just so well organised. Just meeting the boys and families living with Duchenne has energised us all. - Richard Smith, Illingworth Research Group, Exhibitors and presenters Dear Exhibitors, I am delighted to let you know we have launched our Exhibition Area for the Action Duchenne International Conference 2018. Our focus is to provide a varied range of companies, goods and services for our wonderful families and, as such, we would like to ask you to join us for the weekend 9-11 November at the Hilton Metropole, Birmingham. Last year was a fantastic conference, with over 550 people from the international Duchenne community attending. Our Exhibition Area has become a key part of the weekend, with our community seeking a wide range of potential options for the significant growth in available technology. Exhibiting companies finding the event a great opportunity to meet with Duchenne families, professionals and clinicians, forging strong relationships and showcasing their offerings. This year, we expect 600 visitors who will be coming to arm themselves with information, meet families, share experiences and gain hope. The diversity of visitors is growing, with unprecedented numbers of adults and young people living with Duchenne and Becker in attendance last year. To give as many families as possible the opportunity to attend, we offer everyone living with Duchenne free tickets, with families attending at a significantly reduced rate. This is only made possible by the generous support of our exhibitors and sponsors. I have attached a pricing guide for the Exhibition Area, if you wished to discuss sponsorship opportunities please do get in touch. The Exhibition Area will be allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis so please revert with your completed Exhibitor Agreement as soon as possible to secure your stand space. If you have any questions please do call me on 020 8556 9955. Thank you for your continued support and for contributing to the largest Duchenne event in Europe.
