Venue & Accommodation

BMA House
The 2018 WFC ACC Education Conference will be held at the historic and spectacular BMA House, located in the heart of London’s fashionable west end. Steeped in history and architectural beauty, BMA House in Tavistock Square has been home to the headquarters of the British Medical Association since 1925, when it was officially opened by King George V and Queen Mary. The building stands on the site of the former home of Victorian author Charles Dickens, who lived in Tavistock Square from 1851 to 1860.

The magnificent Grade II listed building was designed in 1911 by Sir Edward Lutyens and will be the most impressive venue yet for a WFC ACC Education Conference. Having recently been upgraded with high tech facilities, many of the versatile spaces retain their original features. The main plenary sessions and poster exhibition will be held in the Great Hall, while breakout sessions and workshops will be held in a number of other conference rooms held as part of the event. Impressive space will be available to host the conference exhibitors.
