The organisation has compiled top tips on incorporating the Fab Four into conferences and events in the city to mark fifty years since the final Beatles line-up came into fruition in 1962 following the sacking of original drummer Pete Best in August of that year.

Kate Currie, interim convention bureau manager, said: "As one of the city’s most famous exports, we are often asked for recommendations on how to incorporate The Beatles into conferences, events and dinners in the Liverpool city region. With a number of venues dedicated to the band, historic locations in the city, and a year-long celebration of all things Beatles, we hope the tips prove helpful to conference organisers looking for inspiration and illustrate the amazing events we are able to host".

The tips include involving a workshop or keynote speaker into your event such as Something About The Beatles which uses the band as an example of a well functioning team.

The Cavern Club, where The Beatles first rose to fame, is also tipped as a venue to showcase Beatles-related events.

Meanwhile, on 5 October, Liverpool is inviting event planners and their delegates to be part of a Guinness World Record attempt to gather Beatles fans from all over the world will at The Pier Head to attempt the largest performance of Love Me Do – ato mark the 50th anniversary of the UK release of this, their debut single.
