London Meetings

OES meetings are proving very popular and capacity audiences are being achieved. We have clarified the priorities to ensure fairness for members and ensure reserved attendance is guaranteed.

Priority is given to OES members, co-sponsoring organisations and speaker’s organisations registering at least 3 working days before the event. Any further prioritisation is based on the order of registration.

On a number of occasions registrants have failed to attend on the day thus depriving others the opportunity to attend. Therefore, registrants who later find they are unable to attend MUST advise the OES Secretary AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so the space can be released to the standby list. Failing to do this may lead to withdrawal of the facility to pre-register for a period.

In all cases the meeting Chairman’s decision shall be final.


You can apply online for either individual or corporate membership, or for more information, contact
