Venue and Accomodation

The MPA 2013 conference took place in the Corpus Christi College, one of the oldest and most beautiful colleges in Oxford.

Corpus Christi is a traditional College situated on a quiet lane in the heart of the City Centre, equidistant from the bustling city centre and the peace and quiet of Christchurch Meadow and the river.

Conference Facilities

The new Auditorium, set into the bastion of the city wall, can seat a maximum of 135 people in theatre style. This room is situated in the College gardens, so is very private and quiet. As well as the latest in technology, the room has large picture windows giving views of the trees in the College gardens and of Christchurch Cathedral and has wonderful outside spaces for breaks – including a fabulous roof terrace with views across Christchurch Meadows towards the river - weather permitting of course! All meals were taken in our magnificent Tudor Hall.

Accomodation was provided in the College. The meeting format as a residential meeting strongly promoted the interactions between all participants and provided great networking opportunities for all participants.
