 Ensign Events announces venue for IMHR conference

Ensign Events announces the Royal College of Surgeons as the venue for the International Maritime Human Rights Conference and Gala Dinner 2016 on September 14th 2016.

As one of the world’s leading surgical institutions, the College has been based at Lincoln’s Inn Fields since 1797, representing an institution at the forefront of surgical education and training and now serving as an outstanding venue for conferences, meetings and banquets. Built in 1835, the Grade II listed home was designed by Sir Charles Barry, the architect of the Houses of Parliament.

Following the conference, the evening will begin with a drinks reception in the original Surgeons Library and the fascinating Hunterian Museum.

The Gala Dinner will be held in the beautiful Edward Lumley Hall, the college’s largest conference room. With its oak panelling and imposing proportions, the room provides a perfect setting for all dinner guests.rcs_venu3-1280x470

The first International Maritime Human Rights conference will focus on explicitly addressing the issue of maritime human rights and associated welfare issues throughout the maritime environment by bringing together industry, civil society and government-level leaders for discussion and debate on current issues that universally affect the human element at sea.

In a joint statement, Jean Gowin and Lesley Bankes-Hughes, Directors of Ensign Events, said: “We are delighted to have secured such a fantastic venue for the IMHR conference. The Royal College of Surgeons not only has excellent conferencing facilities, but also has some amazing reception rooms for the networking, refreshments and evening gala dinner. We look forward to welcoming our delegates, who will enjoy a ground-breaking programme in this historical setting – the booking area for tickets will be live very shortly.”
