Edgbaston Park Hotel, Birmingham


The NIHR Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) was held on 16 & 17 May in Birmingham, spanning a day and a half. This conference aimed to bring together national members of the NIHR school for knowledge sharing, research presentations, and networking.

Our role at BeaconHouse Events included everything from supporting with venue research, to speaker liaison, to post-event evaluation and carbon footprint reporting.

The event was attended by 192 delegates from across the UK, featured 20 poster presentations, and included 54 speakers. Through meticulous planning and execution, we ensured the NIHR ASM was a successful platform for collaboration and innovation.

“BeaconHouse Events are really good to work with. They are friendly and responsive and understand our needs. They’re always a step ahead with regard to chasing speakers and having their help on the day took a lot of pressure off, enabling our team to get more out of the event in terms of networking with colleagues etc. They went above and beyond, for example, taking our banner stands and other promotional materials to the venue in Birmingham (from Newcastle).” NIHR School for Public Health Research (SPHR)
