Dear Friends and Colleagues,
With less than 6 weeks to go I am really looking forward to seeing you at the 25th Regional Congress of the ISBT in London, United Kingdom which is being held in conjunction with the 33rd Annual Conference of the British Blood Transfusion Society from June 27th to July 1st, 2015. The Local Organising Committee has worked closely with the ISBT Scientific Committee to develop a superb scientific programme that will cater for the educational and developmental needs of a wide spectrum of Transfusion Professionals, covering Clinical Transfusion Practice, Cellular Therapies; Laboratory Aspects of Transfusion; Donors and Donations; Immunobiology; Adverse Effects of Transfusion; Reducing Transfusion Risks; Management and Organisation of Blood Services including Regulatory Aspects. Meanwhile, the Social Programme presents an ideal opportunity to experience the multi-cultural delights of London, one of the most vibrant cities in the world!
The Congress takes place at ExCel London, a self-contained, world class, award winning congress centre in the heart of London’s events district. ExCel London boasts a unique waterfront location with over 40 on-site cafes, bars and restaurants and is easily accessible by public transport. There are 7 hotels with over 1,500 rooms on the ICC, ExCel campus and a further 2,000 rooms are available within walking distance.
In addition to attending a fantastic, thought provoking and thoroughly engaging Congress, delegates will have the opportunity to sample the remarkable cultural delights that London has to offer. There are 4 world heritage sites and over 250 free attractions, 150 theatres, 250 galleries and 300 museums including the spectacular British Museum and the Natural History Museum. There’s Buckingham Palace; Westminster Abbey; St Paul’s Cathedral; the Tower of London; the London Eye…..the list is virtually endless!
With the date rapidly approaching, I truly hope you will feel enthused to join us at the 25th Regional Congress of the ISBT in London from June 27th to July 1st, 2015. I am sure it will be a memorable and rewarding Congress and look forward to welcoming you there next month.
