ACC Liverpool confirms six new conferences over next five years

National Union of Students and British Association of Dermatologists are among those holding future conferences in Liverpool.

Conference venue ACC Liverpool has confirmed six new conferences to take place over the next five years.

The European Veterinary Dermatology Congress takes place in September next year, then in 2020, the venue will welcome the National Osteoporosis Society and the National Union of Students.

Looking further ahead, the Local Government Association (LGA) Annual Conference and Exhibition will arrive in 2021, the European Society of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology (ESPO) in 2022 and the British Association of Dermatologists in 2023.

Ambassador Ray Clarke, consultant children's ear, nose and throat surgeon at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, said: "The ESPO biennial conference is the largest pediatric otorhinolaryngology meeting in the world and we have spent three years working on the bid process to bring it to Liverpool.

"It has been a real team effort between all involved and we are thrilled that it will take place in the city in 2022, particularly as we lost the 2020 event by just one vote."

ESPO confirmed its event earlier this month, after Liverpool beat Prague to host the congress. It will bring 1,800 delegates in May 2022 and is the largest gathering of its kind in the world. It was last held in the UK 16 years ago and will generate £3.1 million in economic impact for the city region.

These events will bring a total of more than 7,000 delegates to the waterfront venue.
