This year has been a year like no other. Who would have thought 10 months ago that we would still be affected by COVID19? Amongst all the sadness and suffering, one key message has shone through; to be kind and look out for one another. With the events industry being one of the hardest hit by the virus, supporting each other has been key to keeping the industry alive. So in the face of adversity, we have come together with two other fantastic Euston venues; Wellcome Collection and Royal College of Physicians to collaborate and refer business between one another.
The Euston area is often referred to as the medical mile, as it has strong links with local hospitals, universities, and general practitioners. With fantastic connections to the UK and Europe, Euston is an ideal area to host any event.This year the medical profession has been in the media more than ever before showing their strength, commitment, and utter professionalism.
Often we find that a lot of our clients are looking for medical-related venues in the Euston area. However, the ever-changing guidelines around opening and reopening can often make it tricky to offer our clients available dates. With additional time on our side, the three of us set up an initial small network to talk about our COVID experiences. At that point, we saw an opportunity. An opportunity to refer business to one another and to demonstrate unity through a common goal. We wanted to come together to support each other’s events and provide multi-site spaces for meetings as necessary. All of us can offer a vast range of delegate packages, hourly rates, digital and hybrid solutions, to ensure that all our client needs can be met.
Now of course we know you know of BMA House, just by making it to this page. Here is a little more about the other two spaces.
Wellcome Collection is the free museum and library exploring health and human experience. Located in central London just steps away from Euston and King’s Cross/St Pancras station. Their venue hire offers thought-provoking event spaces in both the Conference centre and the unique exhibition galleries. Whatever the client’s needs, they can offer flexible and inspiring backdrops for all types of events, from seminars and training sessions, to film screenings and AGMs their capacities range from two people to 300 people.
The Royal of Physicians
The Royal College of Physicians was founded in 1518 by Royal Charter from King Henry VIII. It is the oldest medical college in England. The venue offers highly versatile facilities, with 12 meeting spaces, including tiered auditoriums, conference, meeting, exhibition and dining spaces, with contrasting old and new styles to suit all tastes, giving clients a range of possibilities to create an unforgettable event.
After an extremely challenging year with lots of industry changes, all 3 venues have successfully received the MIA AIM Secure Accreditation and Visit Britain Good to Go Accreditation making them COVID safe venues for the future.
We are delighted to be working together and we all look forward to a more successful and collaborative 2021.
