Orthotropics Symposium 2018

5 - 9 September – London

The Copthorne Hotel near Gatwick

We are holding the 16th Orthotropic Symposium in London on 6th and 7th September 2018 (which incidentally is my 90th birthday!). It will be held at the Four Star Copthorne Hotel, Gatwick, London and promises to be a fascinating couple of days with speakers from around the world talking on a variety of subjects.  Reduced rate travel to London is available from 5th to 10th

The Venue

Once a charming 16th-century farmhouse, the Four Star Copthorne Hotel  is now one of the most highly regarded hotels in West Sussex. While being a mere 5-minute drive from London Gatwick Airport, it feels a world away. Overlooking 100 acres of tranquil woodland, it boasts 227 guest rooms and 11 meeting venues. Take advantage of their on-site hair and beauty rooms, a fitness centre with a well-equipped gym, swimming pool, squash courts, and more.
