Alpha-1 UK Support Group Event Coventry 2018

Alpha-1 UK Support Group 

21st Birthday Celebrations and 17th Annual Social Gathering
& Information day

Mercure Brandon Hall Hotel & Spa Warwickshire, Coventry

Saturday 29th September 2018

We are delighted to announce that our 21st Birthday Celebrations and 17th Annual Social Gathering & Information Day will be held on 29th September 2018 at the Mercure Brandon Hall Hotel & Spa Warwickshire in Coventry. The venue was chosen not only for its central location and excellent transport infrastructure but also for its proximity to two of the national Alpha-1 NHS specialist centres. In addition, we are expecting several distinguished guests who have a close affiliation with the area – more detail will follow in due course. As usual we will have an impressive line-up of speakers, including some who you wouldn’t expect to see at an alpha-1 patient meeting.

Our annual event is the largest gathering of Alphas and their families in the UK and many members take the opportunity to have a long weekend away with some arriving on the Thursday and leaving on the Monday. It is an ideal opportunity to catch up and socialise with friends old and new and have a thoroughly good time.

Our meetings are essentially social occasions rather than formal affairs, however, the Alpha-1 UK Support Group Trustees/Committee will be holding their AGM on Sunday morning 30th September at 10:00 am, and you are warmly invited and encouraged to attend and be proactive in helping shape our year ahead.

We look forward to seeing you.
