RCP hopes to benefit from Knowledge Quarter membership

Following the launch of London’s Knowledge Quarter, a partnership of 35 academic, cultural, research, scientific and media organisations, The Royal College of Physicians hopes to attract a higher volume of medical events and conferences.
 
The initiative was launched last week (4 December) by Chancellor George Osborne with the aim of making the facilities, collections and expertise of its members understood, available and used as widely as possible.
 
“The launch of the Knowledge Quarter marks a significant development for London, further positioning the capital as the go-to destination for medical learning and excellence,” said Clive Ostler, GM at the Royal College of Physicians (RCP).
 
“We are confident that this new development will naturally attract the interest of medical specialists around the globe and as a result stimulate interest in holding conferences and events at the heart of the Knowledge Quarter. We are excited about the opportunities this brings to our conference and events arm.”
 
The RCP hosts medical congresses for national and international associations throughout the year, with medical and pharma business accounting for 57 per cent of bookings at the venue thus far in 2014.
