Proposed events in 2020

The COVID-19 crisis means we are postponing some of our events - please see below.

Venue & Travel

Conference Facilities Entrance BioHub Reception

The usual venue for our events is Birmingham Research Park, B15 2SQ.  Link to Google map.  Please sign in at the BioHub Reception, then proceed to the entrance to the Conference facilities. Some parking places may be available but are not guaranteed.  If you do manage to park at the Research Park, you must give your car registration number to BioHub Reception or you may be ticketed by the car park company.  If not, the University Pritchatts Road pay & display car park - satnav B15 2QU - is two minutes walk away.   We recommend that you travel by train, change at New Street Station for the Longbridge or Redditch service and travel two stops to University Station which is five minutes walk from the venue.

The table below shows the charges for individual meetingsThese fees are designed to encourage online or BACS payments by individuals well in advance and discourage late payments by employers.  If these arrangements cause you difficulties, please contact us and we will try to help.

These fees apply from 2017 onwards



Multiple Meeting Registration Discounts (MMRD)

For 2020, we are once again providing a substantial benefit for fully paid up AQMLM members paying online or by BACS, whereby up to four persons at the same institution can register for multiple events.  The discounts are shown in the table below.  Where there are fewer than four paid events, the range of discounts will be adjusted accordingly.

This MMRD structure applies from 2017 onwards!

To apply for this discount system, please sign into your account and then go here, read the requirements carefully and submit the form.  (The form response fields will only be visible if you are signed in and are a fully paid up AQMLM member.)  We will process the application and contact the applicant by email with instructions for payment.   

Account holder full membership upgrades

All account holder non-members attending our paid events are upgraded to full member at no extra cost for the remainder of the subscription year.  If the event is after 1st July, membership is extended for the whole of the following subscription year.

Purchasing arrangements

  • Please follow the individual meeting links below (when posted with the Programme and registration opens) for online purchase with a credit card via PayPal (no PayPal account needed)
  • To pay by cheque or electronic bank transfer, please email through the Contact form for instructions.

Copies of Presentations
Please go to the Downloads page for information on how meeting attendees may obtain pdfs of presentations free of charge.  Rules have recently been amended to allow full AQMLM members to access presentations of meeting they did not attend in previous years.
