There was also a parallel trade exhibition that delegates explored and enjoyed. A business meeting for all full members of the society (consultant general surgeons practising in Wales) also took place during the conference.

The venue for this conference was Christ College’s new Centre for Creative Arts, Y Neuadd Goffa:The Memorial Hall, which opened in September.
