Manchester Central benefiting from medical ties

Manchester's reputation as a leading centre for medical research has resulted in a boom in national and international medical conferences for Manchester Central.

The 23,000sqm convention centre is currently playing host to the British Academy of Audiology's (BAA) 10th annual conference (18-19 November) - its second medical conference in as many weeks and its fifth so far in 2013.

Angie Robinson, chief executive of Manchester Central, said: "Manchester is a world leader in medical research and as the convention centre lies at the heart of the city centre, it is a fitting choice for national and international organisers staging leading medical events."

Adam Beckman, president of the BAA, added: "We are thrilled to be returning to Manchester Central for the second year in a row to host our annual conference. Our programme will welcome over 700 delegates and highly esteemed speakers from as far afield as the USA, Egypt and Australia."

The BAA conference follows The British Society of Interventional Radiology's 26th Annual Scientific Meeting, which was held at Manchester Central on 13-15 November. Between them, these two conferences alone saw more than 1,500 UK-based and international delegates arrive in Manchester.

Manchester Central was also the chosen venue for the British Cardiovascular Society’s Annual Conference, the 27th British Orthodontic Conference and the 18th World Congress on Disaster and Emergency Medicine - all held earlier in 2013 - and has been selected for the International Conference on Urban Health scheduled to take place in March 2014.
