The conference, which will take place at the Brighton Centre from 27 to 31 October and which has previously been hosted in Milan, Hanover, Bruges and Rotterdam, is set to attract more than 500 delegates from across the world.

The theme of the congress is ‘Letting science do the talking’ and it will focus on cutting-edge science and the promotion of clinical research in gene and cell therapy.

Darren Johnson, Visit Brighton Convention Bureau’s sales manager, said: "Once again Brighton has proved to be a standout international meetings destination.

"Our continued investment in infrastructure, venues and hotel stock along with close proximity and ease of access to transport hubs like Gatwick and London make Brighton popular on the international association’s circuit."
