One Great Biomedical Research Conference

OGGS Night Shoot 2012For ten years Invest in ME (Research) has been organising international biomedical research conferences in Westminster, London. The conferences now attract delegates (researchers, clinicians, media, patient groups, patients, carers, politicians) in a unique event that is friendly and conducive for learning and networking.

Now our eleventh conference is taking place shortly after we celebrate our tenth anniversary as a charity. A special year for the charity – and we are pleased to begin a new decade of funding/facilitating biomedical research into ME with a splendid venue for the 11th conference – #IIMEC11. Invest in ME Research will be holding its annual Biomedical Research Conference at Westminster’s One Great George Street on 3rd June 2016.

A stone’s throw away from the Houses of Parliament, One Great George Street was designed by Scottish architect James Miller and has been a Grade II listed building since 1984.

Encapsulated within its magnificent glass-domed Edwardian building with rich neo-Palladian and Baroque interior, One Great George Street’s stunning Great Hall and Telford Theatre (featured below) have been chosen for Invest in ME Research’s annual Biomedical Research Conference for people suffering from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS).

One-Great-George-Street---Prestigious-Star-Award-WinnerRecently hailed as ‘The World’s Most Prestigious Conference Venue’ at the Prestigious Star Awards, One Great George Street lives up to its name by successfully juggling its historic beauty with technical innovation and exceptional service.

A key reason for selecting the venue was that it has also paved the way for conference venue accessibility, and is arguably the most accessible historic conference venue in Westminster. This venue will have the refreshment area on the same floor as the lecture theatre – making it far easier for all to network and attend presentations. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also available for all visitors.The venue enables anyone, regardless of ability, to participate fully in any event.This was recognised when it won the coveted Cateys award for Best Accessible Venue.

For One Great George Street, accessibility is not solely about complying with the legislation set out in the 2010 Equality Act – It’s also about delivering faultless service to all the venue’s guests, including those with impairments.

For ME, on behalf of patients and their families, we demand the best research possible. For our biomedical research conferences we also demand the best – and we believe we have it this year with One Great George Street. We hope the new venue will help all delegates enjoy the conference even more than in the past. We are looking forward to enjoying One Great Biomedical Research Conference – IIMEC11!
