Conference Venue

We are pleased to announce that this year’s SBNS Autumn meeting will be a joint meeting with the Association of British Neurologists (ABN).  The host unit is the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen’s Square,  London, where our Host and current President Elect, Mr Neil Kitchen, is based.  The conference venue we have chosen is the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in the heart of Westminster. It  has excellent conference facilities as well as fantastic views over Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

The Programme has been carefully designed by the SBNS and ABN Meetings Committees to include  topics and guest lectures that will appeal to neurosurgeons and neurologists alike.

Attending these academic conferences is an excellent opportunity to fulfil external CPD for appraisal and revalidation as well as a chance to network and meet up with friends and colleagues.

In addition to a great academic programme we also have some wonderful social events planned. The Welcome Reception, on Wednesday evening, will be held on the top floor of the QEII Conference Centre with panoramic views over the London Skyline. The more formal Black Tie gala dinner on Thursday evening will be in the magnificent Waldorf Hilton Hotel where the tango was first danced in the UK back in the 1930s.
