- The buzz surrounding the start of BAVS 2016 meant that the conference hashtag (#BAVS2016) was already trending in the UK before the event even truly began.
- The first keynote was delivered by novelist and academic Patricia Duncker, who was an immediate hit both in the lecture hall and on Twitter.
