The latest to confirm is the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) conference, the largest oncology conference in the UK, which will return this year and again in 2014, when it will celebrate the tenth event of its kind. The conference, which brings together clinicians, scientists, PhD students, nurses, patients and carers over three and a half days, has been held at the venue since 2010.
Sharon Vanloo, of NCRI, said: “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.”
The British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) will return in 2016 and 2019, bringing 3,000 delegates to each conference and exhibition. The association held a successful event at ACC Liverpool in 2010 and returned again in 2012 as part of the the Digestive Disorders Federation meeting.
Lynn Samson, of PCO MCI Glasgow, said: “I’ve worked closely with ACC Liverpool for some years and have always found the team to be a pleasure to work with, ensuring all aspects run smoothly. Our last meeting was a superb success and we very much look forward to returning in 2016 and 2019 for BSG’s annual 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 organisers Mediscript Ltd, added: “ACC Liverpool’s experience in the medical conference sector is reflected in the professionalism and expertise of the entire team.”
The British Society of Immunology, which held its conference at the venue in 2010, will return in December this year and again in 2016 and 2019.
Kerrin MacPhie, director of sales at ACC Liverpool, said: “To be able to confirm four repeat events in the medical sector alone highlights the confidence event organisers have in our venue and in the city in bringing together medical professionals.”
