ACC Liverpool lands 3,000-delegate retail event

ACC Liverpool – the £146m venue set to open on the city’s King’s Waterfront area in January – is set to welcome some 3,300 retail chiefs next November following the announcement that it is to host the annual conference of retail property organisation BCSC (formerly British Council of Shopping Centres). The event attracts delegates such as retailers, developers, landlords, local authority executives and retail analysts and was held in Newcastle Gateshead this year. Next year’s conference will run from 10-12 November. “Liverpool is set to become a spotlight destination not only as European City of Culture 2008 but also as a major centre of retail, leisure and lifestyle development,” said BCSC chief executive Michael Green. “I’m delighted we are bringing our event to the city.” Liverpool City Council leader Warren Bradley addded: “This is a huge event which attracts some of the most influential people in the retail industry from across the UK and Europe. It is particularly appropriate that the organisation should come to Liverpool in the same year that the £1billion Liverpool One opens, a development on course to propel the city's own retail offering into the top five in the UK by 2010.”
