London has been selected as the host city for the 2021 European Aids Conference (EACS).
Organised by the European Aids Clinical Society, the 18th edition of the event will be held at ExCeL London from 27-30 October.
The conference aims to bring together scientists from all over Europe for an exchange of the latest information regarding clinical aspects of the disease.
"We are delighted to be hosting the 18th European HIV Conference in London in 2021," said Dr Sanjay Bhagani, president-elect of the European AIDS Clinical Society.
"The UK has made great progress in achieving and surpassing the UN AIDS targets for the fast-track strategy for eliminating AIDS as a major global health threat by 2030."
"This will be a unique opportunity to share our experience and advances in science with partners and colleagues across Europe and globally and learn from each other."
Suzanne Singleton, head of associations at London Convention Bureau, added: "With four of the world’s top 20 universities for life sciences in London, Cambridge and Oxford, and over 350 medtech companies based here in London, event planners can benefit from access to leading medical professionals and thought leaders."
EACS is the latest in a succession of medical associations to have chosen London and ExCeL for events between 2021 and 2025. Others include the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) and the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH).
