Manchester Royal Eye Hospital will mark its bi-centenary as an international centre of excellence in ophthalmology by holding the MREH 200 Bicentenary Conference at Manchester Conference Centre in June 2014. Contendam has been appointed to provide full PCO support services. 

The UK Faculty of Public Health will also be holding its annual meeting in Manchester in 2014 at the University of Manchester in July. Contendam will provide logistics support services to this annual meeting, which is expected to attract approximately 300 delegates.

Contendam will also be providing full service PCO support for the British Society for Immunology's annual congress in 2014, which will be held in Brighton in December and is expected to pull in around 1,000 delegates.

This follows Contendam's annoucement of two association event wins in November.

Susan Hayden, managing director of Contendam, said: "We are very pleased and honoured to be appointed to support these 2014 healthcare conferences, in quite differing fields, and hope that it will prove to be the start of long-term collaborations between Contendam and these organisations."

Congrex UK was renamed Contendam following a management buy out in October 2013.

C&IT is hosting its annual Association Event Planner Forum 2014 at the five-star Grange City Hotel, near London's Tower Bridge, from 31 March to 1 April.
