Compliant Venues was set up earlier this year by former Roche head of global event management Mark Handforth in response to an increasing need for healthcare meeting organisers to ensure their events meet internal and industry codes of practice.

"Healthcare event organisers are being tasked with reducing their compliance risk and enhancing their approval process by using a clear and recognised metric to support their choice of venues for meeting activities," said Handforth. "It is clear that a venue like One Wimpole Street is uniquely aligned to the sectors meetings and event’s needs due to its focus on medicine."

One Wimpole Street is home to the Royal Society of Medicine and delivers medical education events to more than 23,000 healthcare professionals each year.

The venue’s conference and events manager Craig Wallace added: "Any solution that focuses on a sector which is a core competency for us is of real importance and something we continually look at investing in.

"We look forward to leveraging the agency partnerships which we have already seen develop with the solution and are very pleased to have secured the Compliant Venues accreditation. "
