Specialist immune system conference heads to the UK in 2022

The International Complement Workshop will attract more than 500 international clinicians and academics to Newcastle.

In September 2022 the world’s largest ‘International Complement Workshop’ will return to the UK for the first time in 30 years. The complement system is part of the immune system and is important for health and disease.

Several international guest speakers will share best practice and pioneering research, and the event is set to attract more than 500 experts, physicians and industry representatives from around the world. It will be held at Sage Gateshead on the banks of the River Tyne.

Paul Szomoru, director of business events at NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau, said: "The International Complement Society hasn’t held an event in the UK for over 30 years.

"The conference returning and taking place in NewcastleGateshead is testament to the world-leading status of complement research at Newcastle University, Newcastle Hospital Trust and our National Renal Complement Therapeutics Centre."

Kevin Marchbank, from the local organising committee which comprises several experts from Newcastle University, will chair the conference.

He said: "We’re excited to have the opportunity to showcase the North of England to our delegates and give them insight into why many of us choose to live and work in NewcastleGateshead, as well as just how key the research we carry out here is to the complement society."

NewcastleGateshead based event management company, BeaconHouse Events, has been appointed as the event organiser. 

Anna Eyres, head of conferences and events at Sage Gateshead said: "The previous conference is to be held in Berlin, Germany and so we’re very proud that Sage Gateshead has been chosen to host the following conference in 2022.

"As an international event venue, Sage Gateshead has an unrivalled location, world-class acoustics, expert events team and state-of-the-art technical and production facilities, and we’re sure that everyone who comes here will appreciate everything that the north east region has to offer."
