The International Hokkaido Trauma Conference aims to cater to an audience from a wide range of backgrounds including: anaesthetics, intensive care, emergency care workers, paramedics, nursing staff and general practitioners.

Update for the 2021 conference

To our loyal Hokkaido Trauma Conference Delegates, we hope you are all keeping safe at this difficult time.

This brief message is to update you on the current state of planning for the 14th International Hokkaido Trauma Conference, which is currently scheduled for 10-15 January 2021.

It is difficult to predict how the world will look come January, and as such, we have delayed the opening of registrations for the conference.

We are working with the Rusutsu Resort and Ski Japan in order to have very competitive and flexible packages available to you if the situation improves sufficiently in the second half of 2020 to allow for our conference to proceed.

Further updates will be released as the situation becomes clearer in the coming months.

For those of you currently looking into flight and accommodation reservations, please note that at this stage we cannot make any guarantees about the conference progressing, and our standard personal insurance and liability instructions apply (see below).

We know that many of you will be at the forefront of the management of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we wish you good luck and safety in all of your endeavours.


Prof. Daryl Williams
Dr. Tim Webb
