London to pull in £6m from 2005 association win

The London Convention Bureau (LCB) has won its bid to host the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology’s annual conference in 2005. “The conference is expected to attract around 6,000 delegates, plus partners, so we could be looking at up to 10,000 people, generating an estimated £6m for the capital,” said head of the LCB Mady Keup. The conference will take place at Excel and Keup is confident there will be up to 2,000 hotel rooms on site by 2005. The capital was bidding against Athens, and it is London’s third big association meeting win this year.
