Three leading venues in the Euston area of London are joining forces to promote the area as a prime location for events linked to healthcare. Royal College of Physicians, Wellcome Collection and BMA House all use their profits to help larger medical organisations achieve their mission. During this challenging time, they wanted to demonstrate their unity through a common goal.
Often described as the Medical City, the area around Euston is a hub of leading venues with strong links to local hospitals, practitioners and research institutes. It is an ideal place for any form of meeting or event linked to not just medicine but also the wider healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors. Specifically, the three venues will be collaborating, referring opportunities, supporting each other’s events and providing multi-site spaces for meetings as necessary. Together they offer a wide range of delegate packages, hourly rates, digital and hybrid solutions, ensuring all client needs are met.
Fairouz Grzyb, Business Development Manager, Royal College of Physicians continues: “When appropriate, we intend to come back stronger than ever, working as a collective to deliver the best possible experience for delegates and organisers alike. In the meantime, we all offer extensive digital and hybrid packages to ensure that events continue and vital education, knowledge transfer and networking take place. Within current guidelines this also includes events of up to 30 under specific circumstances.”
Diana West, Sales Manager, Wellcome Collection concludes: “As a group, we offer a wide variety of event options. We can work individually or across multiple sites and want above all to demonstrate our unity in challenging times. We have extensive links into all areas of medicine, pharmaceuticals and the wider healthcare market, making us the ideal first call for any event across these sectors.”

BMA House is located in the heart of London, just a short walk from Kings Cross, Euston and St Pancras stations as well as a variety of underground lines and key bus routes. With sustainability and wellbeing at the heart of its offering, delegates can also benefit from the use of clean air walking routes – taking them off the major roads onto quieter, picturesque, less polluted local streets. Thier clean air walking route from Kings Cross for example, is 57% less polluted than a trip down Euston Road and has the benefit of being 1,000 steps – 10% of the recommended 10,000 a day.
BMA recognises the growing and vital need for digital and hybrid event solutions. With this in mind they were one of the first venues to launch such an offering, as far back as June. Including options for webcasting, breakouts, speaker only conferences and exhibitor/sponsor packages, the offering reflects both the challenges presented by COVID-19 and the future needs of event organisers.
