Influx of association conferences for ACC Liverpool

Venue is set to host three major association conferences for the first time, while confirming return of several others.

ACC Liverpool has won bids to host three major association conferences in the coming years.

New wins include the annual conference of the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) which will take place at the venue in April 2021. This event coincides with the opening of The Spine, the RCP’s new £35 million northern headquarters in Liverpool’s Paddington Village. Around 1,000 delegates will attend the event. 

Professor Cheng-Hock Toh, academic vice-president of the RCP, said: "The conference will provide that vital opportunity to spark new conversations with new partners to advance knowledge that can benefit patients, our society and the economy." 

NHS Providers, the membership organisation for the NHS acute, ambulance, community and mental health services, has also confirmed a three-year deal to bring its annual conference and exhibition to ACC Liverpool from November 2021 to 2023.

And next year, the Building Societies Association conference will also take place for the first time at the venue.

Adrian Evans, assistant director of conference and exhibitions at ACC Liverpool, said: "Association business remains strong as reflected in our latest raft of new conferences, which will come to ACC Liverpool over the next few years."

Returning events include the British Oncology Pharmacy Association, returning for the second time next year, the College of Podiatry, returning in 2020, 2021 and 2022 and the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland, returning for the third time in May 2021. 

The Museums Association and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries will both take place in November 2021.

The European Eye Bank Association will bring delegates from across Europe in 2021 and will return to the UK for the first time in over 30 years.
