Event service specialist Joe Manby Limited helped the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) celebrate 100 years of nursing at its recent International Centenary Conference, held at London’s QEII Centre.
As part of its three-year partnership with the RCN, the Harrogate-based company supplied services and shell scheme for the two-day conference which brought together delegates and healthcare leaders from across the world.
One feature of the conference was the gallery area built by Joe Manby to display the public’s photographs depicting 100 years of the RCN and different facets of nursing.
Joe Manby was re-appointed as the RCN’s official event services partner last year to supply event services to its annual congresses and conferences over three years.
The annual RCN congress will take place at the ACC Liverpool in 2017 and the Waterfront Belfast in 2018.
Steven Jenkinson, conference and events manager at the Royal College of Nursing, said: “2016 was a momentous year for the Royal College of Nursing and, together with the annual congress, the centenary conference was a much anticipated highlight in the nursing calendar.”
Richard Manby added: “Only last week, a national veracity poll showed that Britain’s nurses are officially the most trusted professionals in the country and we were delighted to be able to play our part in helping such a well-respected organisation celebrate its 100th anniversary.”
