The venue will host the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) in 2020, which will bring 4,500 delegates to the complex over three days. It has also won bids to host Global Greens and the International Conference on Pseudomonas, both of which will take place in the venue in 2017.

Professor Mehul T Dattani, chair of the programme organising committee of ESPE, said: "The venue is usually selected by the membership of the society and, this year, the organisation was impressed by the bid submitted by ACC Liverpool and voted for the venue with a clear majority. We are confident that our delegates will enjoy their stay in such a vibrant and cosmopolitan city that has a great cultural heritage."

Kerrin MacPhie, director of conference and exhibition sales at The ACC Liverpool Group, said: "We are delighted to confirm this series of international conferences, which in total will bring around 6,000 delegates to Liverpool.

"Each win comes as a result of the extensive research carried out by our international bid team and the relationships with our clients. It’s fair to say we are competing against global venues and destinations.

"Global Greens is also an example of how hosting a successful national event, as we did this year, can lead to securing an international congress at a later date."
