My colleagues of the London Group of the Society of Occupational Medicine and I have great pleasure in inviting you to London for SOM ASM 2008.

As the UK’s political and economic capital, London encapsulates all aspects of the occupational health challenges for our profession and we very much look forward to gathering together as many occupational health colleagues as possible for a few days of top-quality education and enjoyable networking opportunities.

We have chosen the theme “Capital Ideas for Occupational Health” to link to our backdrop as well as our aim to provide an interesting and relevant programme of invited presentations, free papers and a Poster Exhibition.

The Conference will encourage maximum interaction between speakers and participants. We are delighted to be staging this event at the Royal College of Physicians, which is easy to find and which provides us with practical conference facilities in an illustrious and historical setting.

Recognising that networking is very important, we have organised social events to enable participants to get together and enjoy convivial company in interesting settings. Please don’t leave it too late to book onto the social events: numbers will be limited.

Alongside our Conference we will stage an Exhibition and we are grateful - as ever - to our sponsors and exhibitors, who help to keep this meeting accessible by way of supporting the costs of staging it.

Finally, we can only emphasise the appeal of London as a destination for this event. Accessible by all forms of transport and offering an endless supply of hotels and things to do, we encourage you to plan a few days in London to join us for the ASM and, perhaps spend a little extra time enjoying our city.
