The venue has confirmed that the International Clinical Trials Methodology Conference, UK Kidney Week, Royal College of Radiologists, the Royal College of Emergency Medicine and Intensive Care Society will all take place at the waterfront venue for the first time this year.
 
Meanwhile the National Institute of Clinical Excellence, the Royal College of General Practitioners and UK Stroke Forum are among 16 medical events returning to ACC Liverpool. Around 28,000 delegates are set to attend medical events at the venue this year, home to BT Convention Centre, Echo Arena and Exhibition Centre Liverpool.  

Sandra Eyre, senior association sales manager at ACC Liverpool, said: "The medical and healthcare sector remains very strong for us and accounts for 61 per cent of association events in 2017-18.  This is largely thanks to our experience in hosting such events, the city’s expertise in helping to bring them to Liverpool and its continuous growing appeal as a meetings destination.
 
The Royal College of GPs and Hospice UK will be returning to the venue for the third time, which, says, Eyre, underlines their confidence in ACC Liverpool’s team to deliver successful events for them. The Intensive Care Society will use both BT Convention Centre and Exhibition Centre Liverpool in December - their first event in Liverpool, hosting 1,300 delegates.  The event will include interactive areas such as pop-up soapbox stages as well as an enhanced social programme.

The ACC said that further new wins include the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons' event taking place in July and the Healthcare Infection Society event in November.
