Stop by Booth 3129 and meet with representatives from the British Meeting Point.

Just as the ATS is committed to having an international scope and improving global health, so too is the ATS 2014 Exhibit Hall. After all, 28 percent of ATS members work outside of the United States, and nearly half of conference attendees are international clinicians and scientists. Discover what other thoracic and respiratory societies from around the world are doing in one place at one time by visiting the Global Community and the British Meeting Point. 

Conveniently located next to two Exhibit Hall entrances, the Global Community features 17 organizations from throughout the world. Attendees can network with pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine societies and exchange information and ideas about programming and activities. In addition to several international organizations hosting booths, the Australian and New Zealand Society of Respiratory Science Ltd. will display a poster.

Attendees can enjoy a warm and uniquely British welcome at the British Meeting Point. Now in its 15th year at the conference, the British Meeting Point is hosted by the British Thoracic Society and UK respiratory community. Enjoy tea and biscuits, relax, and meet colleagues and friends. This year, the society plans to showcase the new Respiratory Alliance. Learn more at the British Meeting Point in Booth 3129.
