The organisation, which represents more than 20 million workers from more than 900 trade unions worldwide, campaigned to bring the event to the UK serving as ambassadors for Liverpool.

Kerrin MacPhie, director of sales at ACC Liverpool, said: "UNI Global Union Congress is a unique event, the likes of which has never been hosted in Liverpool before.  

"The fact that the board served as ambassadors speaks volumes about members’ confidence in us delivering an event of this scale."

ACC Liverpool will also host the Labour Party conference in 2016 and 2018, as well as welcoming back the UNITE Policy Conference next month and the Trade Union Congress in September.

In April, the UK Oracle User Group picked ACC Liverpool to host its largest ever conference in December for 1,000 delegates.
