ACC Liverpool, home to BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, will welcome more than 1,000 Swinton delegates in January, its third visit at the venue, having held events in December 2010 and January this year.

Lyreco will hold its Sales Convention for around 700 attendees, also in January 2013, marking its fifth return to the venue since 2009.

Elsewhere, The Association of Teachers and Lecturers conference will return for the third time in March, the Royal College of Ophthalmologists will visit for the third time in May and the Museums Association returns for the second time in November.

Heidi Booth-Adams, head of the scientific department at The Royal College of Ophthalmologists, said: "We’re holding our 25th anniversary at ACC Liverpool so 2013 is an important year for us. I have trust and confidence in the venue and the staff, suppliers and hotels in the city as I’ve worked closely with them all over the past few years, having held our event at ACC Liverpool in 2008, 2010 and this year."

Meanwhile, The Liberal Democrats will return for its third party conference at the venue as it stages its annual autumn conference in September 2014. In 2008, the coalition government partner held its spring conference in Liverpool, returning two years later, in September 2010, for its main gathering, which was the first ever major party political event held at the waterfront venue.

Kerrin MacPhie, director of sales at ACC Liverpool, said: "Many of the relationships we have built with associations, corporate and agent sectors go back many years prior to ACC Liverpool opening.

"The key to a successful conference is our clients knowing they can rely on us for service and expertise. To experience such a high number of repeat events is reassurance that we are able to consistently deliver these elements."
