AIMRI Meeting – “Impact of the internet & social media on research” Friday 15 October 2010 – Hampton Court

The AIMRI autumn event will be held in Hampton Court near London.

What is the AIMRI meeting about? AIMRI's next conference will consider how market research is being adapted to take advantages of opportunities presented by the internet – for example in public opinion research and travel research. The impact of cloud computing on market research will also be discussed.

There is still room in the programme for one or two more papers; if you are interested in speaking please send a brief synopsis to Richard Chilton at the address below...

Hampton Court

Built by Cardinal Wolsey in the early 16th century and later owned by King Henry VIII (1491-1547), Hampton Court Palace occupies a beautiful riverside site 23km (14 miles) southwest of London. The palace was once the centre of royal and political life in England, with many famous monarchs residing there. The palace was opened to the public in 1838 by Queen Victoria and today visitors can still see much of the grandeur of this impressive Tudor building. In the Palace Gardens, visitors can happily lose their way in the famous maze which was planted in the North Gardens in 1702.

The hotel will be the Carlton Mitre, famous, comfortable and in a brilliant position. Situated on the banks of the River Thames in southwest London, lies this beautiful historic building which houses our hotel. Charles II first used the building in conjunction with Hampton Court Palace, located opposite the hotel, to accommodate royal guests. Dating back to 1665, the hotel imbues an authentic style of antiquity and elegance that attracts distinguished visitors from all over the world.

We have reserved bedrooms in this delightful hotel but we cannot necessarily hold them beyond 13 August 2010. As the bedroom accommodation is strictly limited it is advisable to book before this date to avoid being disappointed. There are other hotels in the area but many delegates prefer to be in the conference hotel.

Why not stay for the weekend and enjoy the surrounding area (very accessible to London).

What is included

We are keeping the member fee per delegate to a minimum £180 (€215); this includes registration, turnout at all the sessions, lunch (with wine), tea/coffee breaks and the gala dinner. The delegate fee is payable by all attending the sessions, including those giving short presentations. There will be no charge for accompanying persons but they may not attend the formal sessions: there will however be an extra charge for the gala dinner guests. Once again we may arrange a boat trip (at a small extra charge).

For non members there is a slightly higher fee. In the case of new members who attend the meeting and join within 2 months we will waive the joining fee and refund the difference between the member and non-member meeting fees.

The Gala Dinner is included in the full delegate fee. This will cover aperitifs at the restaurant and a gourmet meal with wine. There will be a cost of £65 (€80) per person for guests. A booking form is attached.

How to get there

The nearest airport is Heathrow – perhaps the busiest in Europe. The onward journey is easiest by taxi although public transport is feasible.

Once again we have chosen an outstanding venue for a stimulating event.
