Difficult Airway Society
Annual Scientific Meeting 2018
28-30 November

Dear Colleagues, 


On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, I would like to invite you to Edinburgh to participate in the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Difficult Airway Society. DAS 2018 will take place in the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) from 28th to 30th November 2018.


DAS was last held in Edinburgh in 1999. Since then the society and its annual meeting have grown hugely. We are anticipating around 700 delegates to join us in 2018. DAS 2018 will open with a reception after the workshops on Wednesday 28th, with a full 2 day programme of airway related presentations on the Thursday and Friday. There will be a break-out session specifically for Anaesthetic assistants.


The EICC is a large, modern, purpose-built, multi-functional conference centre. It occupies a very central location, 8 minutes walk from Edinburgh Haymarket train and tram stations, the latter serving the airport. Transport links to Edinburgh are plentiful, with many direct national and international flights, and excellent train and bus services from most parts of the country. 


Edinburgh the capital city, with its unique heritage, architecture and culture, will be lit up and ready to invite visitors to its magical Christmas markets and winter wonderland celebrations. You can be assured of the warmest welcome and traditional Scottish hospitality in Edinburgh in November 2018.


We look forward to seeing you there.
