Log in





On behalf of the local committee we are delighted to welcome you to Belfast for the 2022 British Association of Spine Surgeons meeting. The meeting will be held at the International Convention Centre at the heart of Belfast – one of Europe’s most accessible, vibrant and flourishing cities. 

This year the conference will focus on the theme of frailty in spinal surgery. The programme will appeal to a wide cross section of the spinal community and promises to deliver informed discussion and debate.

We are pleased to welcome our colleagues and friends from the Canadian Spine Society. Guest speakers from Europe and the UK will ensure this is a meeting not to miss.

The annual dinner will be held at the Crumlin Road Gaol, a former Victorian era prison known as Europe’s Alcatraz. This promises to be a venue like no other both in terms of setting and the rich history it provides.

As we emerge from the grips of the Covid-19 pandemic and embrace the new normal we are delighted to have the opportunity to host this prestigious event.
