Excel lands female health conference

Excel London has been named as the venue for the inaugural Women Deliver conference this autumn. Taking place from 18– 20 October, the event is expected to bring together some 2,500 delegates from across the globe. These will include major political and public figures as well as leading health professionals. The key target audience will be ministers of finance, planning and health from selected southern hemisphere countries. Women Deliver is the world’s largest gathering on women’s health and rights and the conference coincides with the 20th Anniversary of the Safe Motherhood Initiative, whose aim is to draw the world’s attention to and reduce the number of deaths and illnesses associated with pregnancy and childbirth. Bernadette Simmons from Women Deliver said: “Excel is the perfect choice for the conference as it has the capacity, the facilities, the location, the transport links and the flexibility to ensure that our event is the leading healthcare event of the year.” Excel managing director Vanessa Cotton added: “We are delighted that the Women Deliver conference has chosen our venue for this highly important event. This is a real flagship event for London and we’ll be working extremely hard over the following months to ensure its success.”
