Interested in hosting a future BAM Conference?

The number of venues expressing an interest in hosting the BAM annual conference has increased with the continued success of the event. To ensure fairness and transparency BAM has implemented a formal tendering process. This process will be overseen by the Membership Services and Conferences sub committee who will present recommended venues to BAM Executive and/or Council for ratification.

Any interested institutions or venues should submit an ‘expression of interest’ at least by the end of October normally two years before the conference (e.g. by October 2012 to host BAM in 2014).

However, we are at the moment accepting expressions of interest for BAM2013 and BAM2014, and Full proposals should be submitted by 30th November 2011. The submitted proposal should include:

  • Outline of venue for the conference including the conference dinner
  • Likely co-chair (with BAM president) and points of contacts for the conference
  • Outline costs for holding the conference (including room hire, catering costs)
  • Outline of the range of local accommodation available and price range
  • Accessibility to and around the venue
  • Possible themes for the conference
  • Any contributions to be made from the institution (financial or in kind)
  • Outline of a risk management plan
  • Existing and likely future support of BAM from BAM members at the institution
  • When you hope to host the conference

Shortlisted venues will be visited by a selection panel from BAM and decisions made early in 2012.

Further details of the process and criteria can be found in the document ‘Tender Process for Hosting the BAM Annual Conference’ which can be found here by clicking on Hosting the BAM Annual Conference.
