The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in Regent’s Park, London, has reported a 34% year-on-year increase in bookings for association events in 2015 during the period from January to October, compared with the same period in 2014.
The medical venue reported 57% of all meetings held at the RCP related to the medical and pharmaceutical sectors.
RCP sales and marketing manager Natacha Allen said: “We’re pleased to have had such success with the associations sector over the last 12 months. We’ve seen a great legacy from the 50th anniversary of our iconic building which we celebrated last year and the launch of the Knowledge Quarter has played an important part in the development of our offering in the heart of the educational hub.”
The Knowledge Quarter (KQ), launched by the Chancellor last December, is a partnership of 35 academic, cultural, research, scientific and media organisations based in Kings Cross, Euston and Bloomsbury in London.
The RCP venue can accommodate up to 400 delegates and hosts functions ranging from large international conferences to private dinners and garden parties. It also has a medicinal garden which contains 2,000 medicinal plants from around the world.
