The Meeting takes place in the 3rd week on January and runs from Wednesday to Friday.

The Venue

Hotel conference venue

Total number of hotel bedrooms: 350

The current formula is that all delegates and industry are able to stay in same hotel. We would like to encourage this, therefore hotel room prices should be negotiable (easier in January) to a level which allows AHPs and trainees to stay in same venue.
