Venue & Travel

Conference Facilities Entrance BioHub Reception

The usual venue for our events is Birmingham Research Park, B15 2SQ.  Link to Google map.  Please sign in at the BioHub Reception, then proceed to the entrance to the Conference facilities. Some parking places may be available but are not guaranteed.  If you do manage to park at the Research Park, you must give your car registration number to BioHub Reception or you may be ticketed by the car park company.  If not, the University Pritchatts Road pay & display car park - satnav B15 2QU - is two minutes walk away.   We recommend that you travel by train, change at New Street Station for the Longbridge or Redditch service and travel two stops to University Station which is five minutes walk from the venue.

The table below shows the charges for the four individual meetings in 2017These fees are designed to encourage online or BACS payments by individuals well in advance (with employer re-imbursement) and discourage late payments by employers.  If these arrangements cause you difficulties, please contact us and we will try to help.


Multiple Meeting Registration Discounts (MMRD)

We are once again providing a substantial benefit for fully paid up AQMLM members paying online or by BACS, whereby up to four persons at the same institution can register for up to four meetings during 2017 - up to 16 places altogether for an average cost of £35.00.  The discounts are shown in the table below:

To apply for this discount system, please sign into your account and then go here, read the requirements carefully and submit the form.  (The form response fields will only be visible if you are signed in and are a fully paid up AQMLM member.)  We will process the application and contact the applicant by email with instructions for payment.  (Note that this system is now only available for the October & December events.)  14 members have taken advantage of the MMRD system and registered a total of 39 places for the four events this year.

Account holder full membership upgrades

All account holder non-members attending our events are upgraded to full member at no extra cost for the remainder of the subscription year.  If the event is after 1st July, membership is extended for the whole of the following subscription year.
