Can you host BOMSS in 2018 or 2019?

We are looking for expressions of interest from anyone wishing to host our Annual Scientific Meetings in January 2018 and January 2019.  This is what we are looking for:

The Meeting takes place in the third week of January and runs from Wednesday to Friday.

The current formula is that all delegates and industry are able to stay in same hotel and we want to continue and 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. We will  look for a range of alternative hotel accommodation (if necessary) within walking distance of main HQ Hotel.  

 The Venue
Hotel conference venue
Total number of hotel bedrooms: 350 

Trade Exhibition
Minimum Trade Exhibition space of 400sqm² 
Catering should be confined to the Trade exhibition area
Set up on Wednesday

Poster area for 90 poster sides

Breakdown on Friday; after lunch

BOMSS Training Day 

This takes place on Wednesday and is sponsored event
3 – 4 breakout rooms are required for the whole day
It would be beneficial if the Training Day is serviced by a separate entrance
