International venue heads to meet in Liverpool

The International Association of Congress Centres (AIPC) has named Liverpool’s Arena and Convention Centre as the venue for it’s 2010 annual conference. The AIPC represents 160 members in some 53 countries and is attended by senior venue staff. The 2010 announcement was made in Singapore, where this year’s event is currently happening this week. “AIPC is an organisation which puts excellence in the industry at its very heart. To be a member is an honour in itself, so to be chosen as the host venue for its conference is quite something else,” said BT Convention Centre general manager Jacquie Rogers (part of ACC Liverpool). “We have been open for just a few months and have strived to make the facility world-class in every way. It is a real vote of confidence that after such a short time we’re able to make an announcement of this magnitude.” AIPC president Edgar Hirt said: “ACC Liverpool is one of our newest members and so we’re delighted to be making this announcement. We have been extremely impressed with the facility and believe our members will find its considerable environmental credentials of particular interest.”
