A brand new medical event and addition to the Clarion Events portfolio, Austere Medical Environments (AME), focused on the delivery of care in challenging and remote environments; bringing together the Trauma Innovation conference and the Institute of Remote Health Care’s (IRHC) annual conference. Olympia London Conference Centre’s flexible layout ensured the two-streamed event was a success.
Clarion Events needed a flexible space that could accommodate multiple breakout sessions alongside the main education programme; a requirement that Olympia London Conference Centre could meet. Four simultaneous round table style discussions were hosted in four seminar rooms alongside streamed lectures in the Auditorium and Conference Room One, accommodating 449 and 150 delegates respectively. A dynamic atmosphere for social learning was also created in the reception area where military presented case studies on the hardest trauma scenarios encountered while a live demo featuring the latest medical simulators brought extreme scenarios to life. Exhibitors from each healthcare discipline from all over Europe presented their services in the same space.
Duncan Reid, Event Director, Clarion Events said:
"Our multi-streamed conference required a purpose-built venue that could offer versatility, open space and private rooms for smaller meetings. That, teamed with our need for a top-class, sophisticated venue that reflected our prestigious guests and content meant that Olympia London Conference Centre was the perfect choice.
Their flexibility allowed us to mould the venue to suit our requirements; from contained exhibition space to drinks receptions. We even turned one of their conference rooms into a changing room. Having done business with the team for many years, with a high proportion of our consumer portfolio taking place in their larger venues, it was a delight to host this new conference at Olympia London and see first-hand how their adaptable space can be utilised."
