Welcome Reception with Conference Registration

Wednesday 22nd June 2022, 7:15pm – 9pm
In the Great Hall and New Library, Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, 9 Queen Street, Edinburgh EH2 1JQ

The night before the opening of the main Conference there will be a Welcome Reception.  All delegates are welcome but attendance must be pre-booked.

Dating back to the Victorian era, the Great Hall is a lavish, magnificent room.  Adjoining the Great Hall is the New Library, which despite its name dates back to the 1860s.  It has a stunningly ornate ceiling and a vast collection of antique books housed in handcrafted oak cabinets.  These spaces will give our Welcome Reception a very prestigious backdrop.

Registration will be open at the Welcome Reception for you to collect your materials for the main Conference.

The Welcome Reception will include drinks and nibbles.

The aim of this event will be to enable old friends and new to get together in an informal, relaxed setting.  This will be a particularly special reunion for many people, following the absence of an in-person ASM due to COVID-19.

Tickets are complimentary with Full Registration, but please indicate at the time of registering whether or not you wish to attend.

Guest tickets and tickets for Day Delegates are available at a cost of £35.00

No transport is provided to this event.

Dress code: Smart casual.


The Welcome Reception is kindly sponsored by the Institute of Occupational Medicine
