More than 1,000 medical professionals from across the UK are expected to attend BSEcho 2022 in Newport, south Wales.
The two-day event will offer networking opportunities and educational sessions on scientific and technological advancements in echocardiography. It has been projected that the event should boost the local economy by around £1.2m.
British Society of Echocardiography operations manager Gill Daniell said: "ICC Wales was the natural choice for us, as our members are based all over the UK, so Newport is an accessible and central destination."
The British Society of Echocardiography is made up of cardiac physiologists, clinicians and professionals involved in cardiac ultrasound.
It was formed in 1990 to promote the study and advancement of cardiac ultrasound imaging and Doppler techniques. Members are offered professional representation, education and benchmarking.
When ICC Wales opens in 2019, the £83.7m joint venture between Celtic Manor Resort and Welsh Government will accommodate 5,000 delegates.
The venue includes a 4,000 sqm pillar-free main hall, a 1,500-seated auditorium, 12 flexible meeting rooms, a double-height glass atrium and a 2,500 sqm outdoor plaza.
