Following ASGBI’s 90th anniversary Congress in 2010 at the venue, it has confirmed it will return to Liverpool in 2012, 2016 and 2020.

 The ASGBI International Congress attracts around 2,000 delegates, of which 25 per cent attend from overseas.
 
ACC Liverpool has worked closely with Liverpool Convention Bureau to bring the ASGBI Congress, which has an estimated £1.7m economic impact on the local economy, to Liverpool.

The congress will be held in Glasgow in 2013, 2017 and 2021, and in Harrogate in 2014, 2018 and 2022.
 
ASGBI chief executive Nicholas Gair said: "ACC Liverpool was one of the few venues to be considered which could, from the outset, accommodate the projected increase of delegate numbers for each year up to 2020."
