The British Herpetological Society


AHH/BHS Student Research Poster Showcase 2023

The event is running over 2 days at Drayton Manor where we invite students to submit their research posters for showcase. These will be displayed for the duration of the conference to enable delegates to read, ask questions and enable students to network. This is a great opportunity to showcase your work to the herpetological community including industry professionals from zoos, researchers and academics from around the globe. Every research student whose poster is accepted for display can attend the Conference free of charge and therefore will NOT have to purchase Conference tickets - however you will still need to book and pay for the Saturday evening dinner if you wish to attend that. 

To enter, just download the guidance and ‘Student Research Poster Submission Form’ for more details on format and sending a digital copy of your poster for registration. 

We look forward to seeing your research work!
