The conference speakers included many of the very best speakers from around the world (including Dr Gordon Giesbrecht, Dr Kobi Peleg and Professor Chris Imray, who are the world experts in many remote extreme medicine fields including expedition and wilderness, pre-hospital, disaster and relief medicine.
The specialist conference was developed specifically with medical professionals in mind, bringing together the learnings from various areas of remote medicine, and attracted delegates from around the world.  70% of the delegates were doctors with the rest of the audience being other medical specialists such as nurses, paramedics and 'aspiring' extreme medicine university students.

“This conference was a fantastic opportunity for medics to gain insight and knowledge from leading professionals in extreme medicine.”  Dr Amy Hughes, Medical Director, Expedition & Wilderness Medicine
Each day of the conference focuses on different aspects of Extreme Medicine. The first day covers Expedition & Wilderness; the second day was built around Pre-Hospital Medicine with days 3 and 4 covering Disaster Medicine and Extreme Medicine respectively
With regards to the prevoius London conference.  Presentations varied from Dr Kevin Fong, television presenter and co-director of the Centre for Aviation Space and Extreme Environment Medicine (UCL) talking about space medicine to Jon Snow discussing what it is like to be a journalist in extreme and hostile environments, the delegates found the 4 days very enjoyable as well as a superb networking opportunity with 90% *of the 400 delegates saying they would come to the next conference.
