The Brief

To organise and manage a three day annual conference for 750 delegates and exhibitors with an extensive programme including plenary and parallel sessions. The organisation's AGM would also take place and a creative strand was to be provided throughout the programme. The organisation of an onsite evening drinks reception with an awards ceremony on day one and an offsite conference dinner on day two was also required.

In addition an exhibition was to run throughout the conference for companies/organisations to reach delegates within the field of hospice/palliative care.


The Result

Attendance was the biggest ever for Hospice UK and the venue worked perfectly. A very successful and well received exhibition providing the ideal space for delegates to meet and not only network with suppliers but to network with their peers and view over 200 posters accepted via the Call for Papers process. A conference programme which delegates evaluated as diverse and stimulating. A social programme which provided a perfect balance of networking and fun.

Compleat has worked with us on various aspects of our national conferences including venue searching, abstract management and liaising with contractors. We value their 'can do' approach and their support.
