Arena and Convention Centre (ACC) Liverpool in Liverpool, England, has signed or re-signed four significant health care events over the next six years.
The latest to recommit through next year is the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) conference, the largest oncology conference in the United Kingdom, which will return this year (Nov. 36) and again in 2014. The conference has been held at the venue since 2010.
“We bring together 2,000 delegates for every event and overall feedback is that ACC Liverpool provides excellent conference and event facilities in a city that is a hub for the medical sector,” says Sharon Vanloo of NCRI, in a statement.
The British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) will return in 2016 and 2019, bringing 3,000 delegates to each conference and exhibition. The association held its event at ACC Liverpool in 2010 and returned again in 2012 as part of the Digestive Disorders Federation meeting.
The British HIV Association (BHIVA) and the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) will hold their third joint conference at ACC Liverpool in 2014, potentially bringing more than 1,000 delegates to Liverpool over three days. BHIVA held its last conference at the venue in 2009.
Faarid Patel, managing director of conference organizer Mediscript, which is responsible for the joint conference on HIV an sexual health, adds, “ACC Liverpool’s experience in the medical conference sector is reflected in the professionalism and expertise of the entire team.”
Finally, the British Society of Immunology, which held its conference at the venue in 2010, will also return in December this year and again in 2016 and 2019.
“To be able to confirm four repeat events in the medical sector alone highlights the confidence event organizers have in our venue and in the city,” says Kerrin MacPhie, director of sales at ACC Liverpool.
