Delegate registration is now open and the charge per delegate including lunch and all refreshments throughout the day is £69.00 + VAT for Ealing SBM Membership Schools and £99.00 + VAT for all other schools.  

Like at so many London hotels, the on-site parking at the Holiday Inn is very limited.  There is the newly opened Ballymore car park within a ten minute walk from the hotel and the hosts are requesting that, in line with their environmental and sustainable travel policies,  delegates consider using public transport and lift sharing where possible.  There are various bus routes running past the hotel and the nearest train and Underground stations are Brentford Station and Boston Manor on the Piccadilly Line.  The available hotel car parking spaces can only be offered on a first come, first served basis and delegates bringing cars to the Conference are asked to please indicate this when booking.
