The Beardmore Hotel & Conference Centre was delighted to win at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2012:
Beardmore secures medical first for Scotland
The Beardmore Hotel and Conference Centre today (Wednesday 20 March 2013) hosts the British Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance’s (BSCMR) Annual meeting – the first time it has been held in Scotland.
Specialising in medical related conferences, the Beardmore will welcome around 140 delegates from around the UK who have an interest in promoting research and clinical practice in cardiovascular magnetic resonance.
The choice of venue and its links to the national and regional heart services at Golden Jubilee National Hospital also reflects Scotland’s growing contribution to cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to the UK and internationally.
Bronagh Bell, Director of the Beardmore, commented: “We are delighted to secure this conference which is a medical first for Scotland.
“The joint facilities between the Golden Jubilee and the Beardmore such as audio visual links to operating theatres, diagnostic imaging suites and cardiac catheterisation laboratories regularly attract NHS conferences.
“However, today’s annual meeting of the British Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance is a perfect example of how our infrastructure is well placed to meet the needs of our conference clients.”
In addition to the audio visual links, the Beardmore has also introduced technology such as free wireless internet access, Apple iMacs in every bedroom and also enables webcasting and interactive voting services.
