The British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) will return in 2016 and 2019, bringing 3,000 delegates to each conference and exhibition. The association held an event at ACC Liverpool in 2010 and returned again in 2012 as part of the the Digestive Disorders Federation meeting.

The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) conference, the largest oncology conference in the UK, will return this year and again in 2014, when it will celebrate the tenth event of its kind. The conference, which brings together clinicians, scientists, PhD students, nurses, patients and carers over three and a half days and has been held at the venue since 2010.

Meanwhil, the British HIV Association (BHIVA) and the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) will hold their third joint conference at ACC Liverpool in 2014, potentially bringing more than 1,000 delegates to Liverpool over three days. BHIVA held its last conference at the venue in 2009.

The British Society of Immunology, which held its conference at the venue in 2010, will return in December this year and again in 2016 and 2019.

Kerrin MacPhie, director of sales at ACC Liverpool, said: "To be able to confirm four repeat events in the medical sector alone highlights the confidence event organisers have in our venue and in the city in bringing together medical professionals."
