The conference was a resounding success

10 July 2016 - group shot

The three-day conference finished yesterday, and the overwhelming consensus was that it had been a resounding success. 200 people attended, from 20 countries. All 20 presentations – five from women, one from Philip Davies MP (C, Shipley) – were well received, and the attendees greatly enjoyed the social side of the event as well. Videos of the presentations have been published on our YouTube and Vimeo channels.

You can order your ticket(s) here.

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 a second large room, of the same size, next to it. Both rooms have floor-to-ceiling glass panels on the side which overlooks the Royal Victoria Dock, and air conditioning is available, if required. Our promotional video was recorded in and near the conference room – here. 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 20 countries:

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Bulgaria
  • Canada
  • Czech Republic
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • India
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Romania
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • 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. 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).

Presentation – Paul Elam, ‘Gynocentrism: The Root of Feminism’

Presentation #18 of 20. In response to comments made by an earlier speaker, Paul started his presentation with some material that hadn’t been in his original speech notes (00:28 – 3:26). It was a powerful and important addition.
