The event will be the first to occupy the new £30 million Lennox Suite and the  continuous poster display will allow the 2,000 expected international delegates to participate in an open exchange of information and ideas.

Commenting on his choice of EICC to host the event, BAD’s Conference and Events Services Manager, Chris Garrett said: "The expanded EICC has the scale we need for a full scientific programme with separate trade and poster exhibitions in a city centre location and being the first to occupy a new space always has delegate appeal."

Organised by the British Association of Dermatologists (BAD) on behalf of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR), the Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology (JSID) and the Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) of the United States, this quinquennial event will take place from 8-11 May 2013.


The 2,000sqm Lennox Suite features a hall-wide moving floor system for transformations from flat floored exhibition space to tiered theatre and arena setups in a fraction of the time required in conventional halls.
