London to host major medical congress in 2020

The European Association for the Study of the Liver will return to ExCeL London in 2020 for the five-day event.

The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) has announced that it will return to London in 2020. The five-day event will be hosted at Excel London, bringing together more than 10,000 hepatologists, doctors and medical professionals, to share recent data, present studies and findings, and discuss the hottest topics on liver disease.

London is home to hubs for scientific excellence including the Francis Crick Institute, Imperial White City, the Institute for Cancer Research and The Alan Turing Institute.

In 2018, the city played host to Diabetes UK, the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP), the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES) Annual Congress and the British Geriatrics Society Autumn Meeting.

Laurence Verhagen, managing director, EASL said: "EASL is ...a truly global event gathering stakeholders in liver diseases for five days of the best science exchange, knowledge transfer, education, public health and patient support.

"London’s position as an international hub is an important factor in attracting a large audience of experts in the field."

Suzanne Singleton, head of associations at London & Partners, added: "London is a truly global city and EASL’s decision to host their event in London offers further proof that we are a leading destination to host an international associations congress.

"Our global talent pool, world-leading research in science and innovation and access to some of the best experts makes London the natural choice to host a medical associations congress.

"We look forward to welcoming EASL’s delegates from all over the world for this event and to experience everything else that London has to offer."
