The RCN Annual Congress will take place between 21-25 June 2015 and up to 4,000 delegates are expected to attend.

Congress is the RCN's major annual debating forum providing members with an annual opportunity to comment upon and influence Council policy and to help inform the RCN's work for the coming year.

A large programme of professional, educational and social events and the UK's largest exhibition of nursing products and services runs alongside the Congress.

Brian French, RCN conference and events manager said: "It’s great for RCN members that RCN Congress is returning to the south coast after a number of years away. It is always a pleasure to work with the team at the BIC and we look forward to delivering another successful event."

Pat Coyne, BH Live Director of Venues added: "We have been working closely with the organisers to bring the event back to Bournemouth and are delighted RCN will be returning in 2015. With up to 4,000 delegates attending over the Congress period, an estimated £5.6m will be injected into the local economy through business tourism sustaining in the region of 200 local jobs."
