Please come and visit Southampton in the Spring! 

The Wessex Clinical Genetics Service based in Southampton is delighted to announce that we will be hosting the next AGNC conference. 

Please save the dates: Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th April 2022. 

We are all hoping that we’ll be able to meet up in person to celebrate our professional achievements, strengthen our networks and socialise for the first time in a while. However, we are making arrangements for a hybrid event as necessary.   

The conference will be held at the Southampton Football Stadium which has excellent conference facilities, and rather fittingly, the new Southampton football home kit celebrates the ‘DNA’ of the club!!  We will be providing a list of discounted hotels in association with the conference venue. 

We will be hosting our conference meal in the Dancing Man Brewery, a local brewery on the waterfront. It will give you the opportunity to sample our local beers and hopefully we’ll be able to have a bit of a dance too! https://dancingmanbrewery.co.uk/ 

Southampton is a vibrant city on the South Coast of England with an amazing combination of coastal attractions, historic and cultural events, and surrounded by the natural beauty of the New Forest and the South Downs.  Southampton is easy to access via road, rail and air. More information about the city can be found here https://visitsouthampton.co.uk/  

We shall be sending out more details about the conference, registration and asking for abstracts from the membership in the coming weeks. 

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or comments. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful city soon.
