Aberdeen beat competition from Paris, and won the conference bid with 53% of the vote.
The conference is aimed at professionals studying food poisoning organisms campylobacter, helicobacter and related bacteria. Delegates will include professors, researchers, veterinarians and physicians.
AECC, in association with the Aberdeen Convention Bureau, and academics Ken Forbes and Norval Strachan from the University of Aberdeen, helped secure the conference, which is expected to attract around 600 international delegates.
AECC managing director Brian Horsburgh said: "This is the second conference that we have secured in the last few weeks, having recently won International Conference on the Bioscience of Lipids for September 2014. The fact we won CHRO 2013 over a city such as Paris is great testament to the city of Aberdeen and its attractiveness to international visitors and academics".
This week sees Offshore Europe hosted at AECC, an international show for the oil, gas and energy markets.
