    Annual Scientific Meeting 2019

    Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd March

    Radisson Blue Hotel Gasworks




    It's with great excitement and anticipation that we are bringing the ASM 19 to Belfast.  The Radisson Blu Gasworks Belfast is a modern hotel with brilliant transport links and within easy walking distance of the city centre.  

    Our Friday night conference dinner promises plenty of "craic" with live music from Irish traditional group "Shindig".

    Connections, Erections and Reflections will be our theme. Our work is all about helping the patient or client make mind-body connections.  We also look forward to making new and maintaining older connections with each other.  We are hopeful to welcome a great variety of delegates from different geographical locations, levels of experience and specialties.  We will certainly be hearing about erections.  The weekend will provide plenty of opportunity for reflections on our work and generated from our range of presentations.

    The meeting is suitable for anyone working in the field or anyone who wants a taster of what the IPM is all about. Everyone is very welcome.
