With regards to the ever-changing COVID situation, we will be adhering to the Government guidelines which are in place at the time of the BRS Annual Meeting.  Our priority of course will be to ensure that our faculty and attendees are safe and will put in place any social distancing requirements which will be needed at the time.  As we get nearer to the date, we may be required to ask all attendees to provide proof of a negative flow test.

 

Accommodation

Accommodation is available for £75.00 per night, at the newly built Archway Halls Student Campus (a 10 minute walk from the Business School where the meeting will take place).  For delegates with limited mobility or other additional needs, please contact events@boneresearchsociety.org so that we can identify alternative accommodation for you.

Continental breakfast will be served in the communal kitchens in each flat on Thursday morning, and on Friday morning a full English breakfast will be served in the Brooks Building (a short walk across the central piazza).
