VisitBrighton Convention Bureau bags the city’s latest big win

The European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID) has chosen Brighton for its international congress 2016. ESPID is a membership body that promotes excellence in paediatric infectious diseases and child health, and provides networking, training and research opportunities for its members.

Up to 2,500 delegates are expected to attend the 5 day event from 10-14 May 2016 bringing an estimated £5m+ economic benefit to the city.  Due to the size of the event, the conference will take place at the south coast’s largest purpose built events venue the Brighton Centre and the nearby Hilton Metropole Hotel.  

Darren Johnson, VisitBrighton’s, Sales Manager, said: “This is great news for Brighton and the result of real team effort between the Convention Bureau and the venues involved.  Our mission is always to showcase the city and once Kenes, ESPID’s PCO, handed us that baton we really ran with it. It’s great to have been selected and we now look forward to welcoming ESPID to the city.”  

Saul Faust, Professor of Paediatric Immunology & Infectious Diseases at the University of Southampton and one of the meeting Co-Chairs, added: “We were very impressed with the way the Convention Bureau presented the city and it’s clear the destination has a lot to offer delegates.  Brighton offers a convenient location, quality venues, and a great range of bedstock at a competitive price.”
