Meeting Makers Announced as 2016 Scottish Event Awards Finalist
Meeting Makers has been announced as a Scottish Event Awards Finalist 2016, in the category of “Best Conference Held in Scotland”.
We are pleased to have reached the final for the organisation of the 25th Congress of the International Association of Paediatric Dentistry on behalf of The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry. Professor Richard Welbury, Glasgow Dental Hospital and School hosted the congress in Glasgow as Chair of IAPD 2015.
The overall scientific theme ‘The Voice of the Child’ was chosen to advocate the changing position of children in our world. Delegates were updated regarding current social theory and policy relating to childhood, the need for safeguarding, and how to engage child-centred approaches within clinical practice and oral health-related research. The goal of the conference was to showcase world-class and holistic dental care for children.
Meeting Makers won the award in 2014 for the delivery of the European Hernia Society 36th Annual Congress 2014, so are hoping that once again IAPD will see them triumph at the awards which are to be held at the Radisson Hotel in Glasgow on Wednesday 05th of October 2016. We are extremely pleased to once again be nominated for this award as it demonstrates the quality of our services as a PCO. It is wonderful to be recognised for the hard work and commitment of everyone involved particularly Conference Manager Vicki Grant and all her team.
Business Development Manager
We are delighted to announce that Kerry Watson has been appointed Business Development Manager at Meeting Makers. Kerry was formerly the Marketing Manager - Associations, for VisitScotland Business Events and she brings a wealth of sector experience to the role.
Meeting Makers Announce New Business
Meeting Makers Ltd have been appointed to organise the inaugural Rethinking Remote - Innovative Solutions in Remote Health Care Conference (ISRH 2016) being held in Inverness and to support the delivery of the 23rd Rehabilitation International (RI) World Congress hosted by Shaw Trust Scotland at Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
Working in partnership with joint hosts, the Scottish School of Rural Health and Wellbeing (SSRH&W), the University of Aberdeen (Centre for Rural Health), The Institute of Remote Healthcare, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, the University of the Highlands and Islands and NHS Highland, Meeting Makers have won the contract to deliver professional conference organising services to the Rethinking Remote – Innovative Solutions in Remote Health Care Conference (ISRH 2016) which will take place at Eden Court Theatre Inverness.
Phil Wilson, Professor of primary care and rural health (Centre for Rural Health, University of Aberdeen), said:
“We were very impressed with Meeting Makers track record in organising international health conferences and their overall approach. They had clearly understood the brief very well.”
Shaw Trust Scotland, an employment, learning and skills charity, is working closely with Edinburgh City Council, Convention Edinburgh, Visit Scotland, Transport Scotland and RI to make the event a success. The World Congress is a unique opportunity to build a stronger international movement aimed at eradicating socio-economic barriers preventing disabled people from leading a more independent life. 1000 delegates are expected to attend the Congress from around the world.
Andrew Parkins, Programme Director for the Rehabilitation International World Congress in 2016, said:
“We chose to work with Meeting Makers because they knew the venue, offered good value for money and responded professionally to all our questions.”

FiLM ran very smoothly and was extremely successful, and it was a delight to work with Meeting Makers and with Fiona, Vicki and Deborah once again. To have had the same team for the last five years of FiLM has been enormously valuable – and what a team! As ever, they combined efficiency, hard work and humour, so our delegates were well looked after at every stage. They were exceptional, and I am grateful for their help and ideas.”
M J Hallworth, Chair, FiLM
