The weather and the transport crisis threatened the British Thoracic Society (BTS) Millennium Winter Meeting 2000 but, despite these problems, more than 1500 delegates attended. A wide range of topics in respiratory medicine was covered in the three days of the meeting. This article reviews some of the highlights of the meeting. There were three main areas of focus in this year's BTS conference. Firstly, adherence to the international guidelines on asthma management which, although emphasising the importance of both lung function and symptoms in guiding clinical decisions, clearly remain open to modification by future developments.
