ICMI18 was held at the ExCel London conference centre from 20-22 July 2018 and was organised by Justice for Men and Boys. ICMI18 was originally going to be held at the Birmingham City Football Club, in Birmingham, UK. Following negative publicity the Birmingham City Football Club cancelled the booking. J4MB subsequently reached an out-of-court settlement with Birmingham City Football Club. The subsequent location of ICMI18 was not disclosed until closer to the event to minimise the risk of interference with the venue by feminists and their allies.
