The five-day medical conference is expected to attract 10,000 hepatologists, doctors and medical professionals and is expected to be worth £25 million to the local economy.

London was selected over other European and UK destinations after a competitive tendering process was run by EASL through Congrex.

London’s promotional organisation, London & Partners, worked in tandem with ExCeL London to secure the bid.
EASL’s Executive Director, Grégoire Pavillon, Executive Director of EASL, said:
"London has transformed itself as a congress venue over the last four years both in terms of world-class facilities and new infrastructure.

"For EASL, London is also a major global centre for medical research and the life science’s industry as a whole. We are therefore delighted to be hosting the 2014 International Liver Congress in the city."

London’s ranking in the recent 2011 ICCA city rankings rose from 14th place to 7th. ?
