July 2013 heralded the start of the MMTA’s 40th anniversary year so we felt it would be appropriate to bring its annual conference back to London in 2014, the home of the association.
The conference will be held at the Park Plaza Victoria during 27-29 April 2014. The venue is centrally located giving ease of access to the main airports, London Heathrow and London Gatwick, as well as the Eurostar located at St. Pancras. Bearing in mind that London accommodation can be very expensive we have secured an extremely competitive room rate for attendees. As always we only have a limited number of rooms available at the group rate so it is advisable to book early.
This event, as always, will provide excellent value for money, and with budget constraints dominating business travel, we have kept the delegate fees extremely competitive.
The MMTA members’ current early-bird rate is GBP800 plus VAT and this includes all aspects of the conference: welcome reception, conference sessions, tea/coffee breaks, luncheons, access to the presentations and, new for 2014, it also includes an additional networking reception on the second evening at Tate Britain kindly sponsored by Lipmann Walton & Co Ltd.
Lipmann Walton & Co Ltd is kindly sponsoring a reception at Tate Britain on April 28 as a part of the conference. The MMTA’s nominated charity is Mufulira which Anthony Lipmann has been involved with for many years.
