The first event run under the new contract will be the State of the Art annual conference being held at ExCeL London, between 5 and 7 December.
ICS appointed Hampton Medical, part of Rapiergroup, following a competitive tender. It is transferring its internal event management functions to the event services agency - the first time it has used the services of an external professional conference organiser.
Dr Stephen Brett, president of the ICS, said: "They immediately understood our vision to continue the development of our dynamic and interactive scientific and educational conference with its major multi-media element.
"We are looking forward to harnessing the Hampton Medical team's creativity and experience to deliver this for our delegates and industry partners."
