Following a competitive tender, Hampton Medical has been awarded a three-year contract for the management of the Intensive Care Society’s (ICS) annual conference, seminars and other educational events.
The society is using the services of an external Professional Conference Organiser (PCO) for the first time and says it hopes to embrace a strategy of shifting State of the Art from one of the more traditional conferences in the field to one of the most innovative and pace setting.
Hampton Medical’s first event working in partnership with the ICS will be the State of the Art Annual Conference, to be held at Excel London, 5–7 December 2016.
An internal restructure at the ICS has seen internal event management functions transferred across to a Hampton Medical.
Hampton Medical expects to draw on innovative and commercially focused solutions from its experience of working with other leading UK and European societies, in delivering the ICS 2016 conference.
Dr Stephen Brett, president of the ICS said: “After a rigorous selection process, we were delighted to appoint Hampton Medical as our PCO. They immediately understood our vision to continue the development of our dynamic and interactive scientific and educational conference with its major multi-media element. We are looking forward to harnessing the Hampton Medical team’s creativity and experience to deliver this for our delegates and industry partners”
Hampton Medical MD Rob Brazier added: “In 2010 Hampton Medical became a Rapiergroup company which has enabled the cross pollination of ideas and best practice from across the group. Taking learnings from the wider show and conference organising division, Hampton Medical offers innovative and industry leading solutions to maximise the commercial and educational success of our association events.”
Hampton Medical Conferences was established in 1988 and offers a full secretariat service to national and international associations and societies across a wide range of sectors. It is part of the Hertfordshire-based Rapiergroup.
