Background

In December 2016, over 160 delegates from around the UK headed to the North East for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) National Trainees Conference – the only annual conference for trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology.

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) works to improve health care for women everywhere, by setting standards for clinical practice, providing doctors with training and lifelong learning, and advocating for women’s health care worldwide.

The conference featured two days of scientific debates, clinical talks by leading experts, discussions, and networking, concluding with a conference after-party at the BALTIC Mill, overlooking the famous Tyne River.

Our support:

NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau supported the RCOG throughout the planning process, securing the conference venue and accommodation, and ensuring that event organisers were able to make the most of the destination and all it has to offer.

During the conference, the RCOG wanted to drive support for UN Women, the global champion for gender equality, by promoting the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign.

In support of that year’s campaign theme, ‘Orange the World: Raise Money to End Violence against Women and Girls’, NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau facilitated the illumination of the Gateshead Millennium Bridge in orange.

Organiser testimonial:

Jessica Letters, Meeting Manager for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said:

“Our National Trainees Conference came to NewcastleGateshead for the first time last year and the assistance of the team at the Convention Bureau was invaluable at every step of the way. From the outset they provided assistance in shortlisting venues and organising our site visits as well as impartial venue advice. They assisted in finding hotel accommodation for our speakers, staff and delegates, and helped give us an insider’s view of the region.

“It was also through the Convention Bureau’s links with Gateshead Council that the Gateshead Millennium Bridge joined monuments and buildings all over the World in being lit orange as a symbol of a future free from violence against women as part of the United Nation’s Orange the World in 16 Days Campaign. I have never visited Newcastle or Gateshead before this event and I left with a really positive impression of the whole region.”
