The city is currently celebrating a succession of record-breaking delegate numbers for international congresses hosted in the city.
The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) saw more than 10,000 delegates join its congress in London from 9-13 April, representing their highest ever attendance, while the European Society of Pathology saw a 23 per cent increase in attendance at ECP, compared to 2013. ESCRS, EURETINA and EuCornea also saw the largest ever gathering of eye specialists in London this year.
The venue says next year will be its best ever year for congresses, with more ICCA rated events than ever before including the European Society of Cardiology, which is expected to welcome 35,000 international delegates in August.
James Rees, executive director, Excel London, said: "The record number of associations that are now choosing London is an endorsement of the decision to open our International Convention Centre. The world renowned attraction of London is responsible for delivering record-breaking attendance and is why so many associations are now seeing our city as a prime location for their events.
"London continues to invest in its product and infrastructure and now, more than ever, is in a position to deliver the best possible delegate experience and value for money. We are committed to continuing our investment in the venue, in the build-up to the opening of our Crossrail station in 2019 and beyond," he added.
Dr Eliot Forster, executive chair of MedCity, launched by the Mayor of London with the capital’s three Academic Health Science Centres to promote innovation and investment in the life sciences cluster of London and the south east, commented: "This is a hugely exciting time for life sciences in London and the south east, with a number of ambitious new initiatives and infrastructure developments under way to promote collaboration across all the sectors that make up this cluster. It's terrific for those of us who do business in the region that these events will bring in experts from around the world to London in such numbers to network and collaborate."
