Venue and accommodation

The two day conference will be held at the Royal Windsor Racecourse in Berkshire. A unique venue set on an island surrounded by the River Thames makes an interesting location for our international visitors and is easily accessible. Situated just off the M4 the racecourse provides free, unlimited parking. Additionally regular trains run from central London and Windsor is a mere 15 minutes from Heathrow via bus or taxi.

Windsor is home to a host of hotels, B&Bs and alternative accommodation options. For further detail please see our accommodation page.

Who should attend?

The whole conference is planned to provide interest and professional development for anyone with an interest in Hyperemesis Gravidarum including doctors, GPs, midwives, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, researchers, commissioners, policy makers and of course patient’s themselves. There is a division of focus on the two days, the first being research focused and the second with a more clinical direction so some delegates may prefer to attend for one or other day depending on their field of interest.
