A dedicated website has been created for the conference, here.
(Note added 21.2.16: You can order tickets here until 12:00 GMT, Sunday, 5 June. Complimentary passes for media representatives are available for the press conference on the morning of Friday, 8 July.)
We are pleased to announce that the second International Conference on Men’s Issues – ICMI16 – will be held over 8-10 July, 2016, at Excel London, the capital’s largest and most prestigious conference and events venue. It’s located in the revitalised Docklands area of East London, and has outstanding facilities for speakers and delegates.
Our conference room can accommodate up to 200 people, and we’ve booked an adjacant room of the same size for break-outs etc. Both rooms have floor-to-ceiling glass panels on the side which overlooks the Royal Victoria Dock, and air conditioning is available, if required. We’re sure ICMI16 will be an excellent event which will place men’s issues high on the international agenda.
Speakers and/or delegates will be coming from at least 17 countries:
- United Kingdom
- United States
While J4MB is solely responsible for the financial aspects of the conference, it is being run in association with A Voice for Men, and we look forward to welcoming some of their key people, a number of whom are well-known to people familiar with their website. All of the 21 speakers are well-known advocates for men’s human rights, and every one of them accepted our invitation without hesitation. Their names, and the provisional titles of their talks, can be found by clicking on the ‘Speakers’ tab of the new website. The conference will be a rare opportunity for you to listen to, and meet, many of the figures you may until now have only seen online.
Please click on the tabs on the conference website to check out ticket booking, accommodation, travel directions, and more.
We are really looking forward to meeting you all at the conference, seeing old friends from across the world, and making new ones.
Why not combine the event with a longer trip to London? Maybe a long weekend if you’re travelling locally, or a wonderful holiday in the UK – or possibly beyond – if you’re travelling from further afield. Click on the tab for a visitor’s guide to London.
July is the best month of the year for warm, dry weather in the UK, and you can be sure of a warm welcome at the conference. We look forward to meeting you and, together, taking the next decisive step forward for the human rights of men and boys (and the women who love them).
Justice for Men & Boys
