British Dyslexia Association International Conference 2021


When and where is the International Conference 2021 taking place?

How can I book tickets to the International Conference?

You can book tickets online now. If you have any queries please email

What will happen if the COVID-19 situation means the conference can't happen?

Whilst we are hopeful that the COVID-19 situation will have subsided by the time of the conference, we have planned for the eventuality that government guidance prohibits the conference from taking place in-person.

In the event that government guidance means an in-person conference is not possible, we will run the conference virtually - this decision will publicised no less than 60 days ahead of the conference. Those who have purchased tickets before any change is made will have their ticket transferred to the virtual conference.

If there is a situation where an in-person conference takes place but government guidance is in place that some groups of people should not attend mass gatherings, e.g. those over a certain age or with certain health conditions, then we will publish a detailed solution to address the issue and ensure people are not penalised for following government guidance.

Please note that we cannot be held liable for any travel, accommodation or other related expenses that may be incurred as a result of the COVID-19 situation.
