Synergy Housing Group is among clients adding to the near £11m of events business secured by the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC).

Synergy Housing Group returns to the BIC at the end of April after holding a training day there in October 2008 for the first time.

The centre has also confirmed two events for 2010, one in each of 2014 and 2016, adding to business worth an estimated £10.8m to Bournemouth's economy.

However, BIC head of conferences, exhibitions and events Clive Tyers said: "Shorter lead times are an increasing trend as clients give greater consideration to where to place their event. With uncertainty in the marketplace, clients are holding back until nearer the time but the business is still out there and still being placed."

Future bookings include a Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists's three-day event in 2010, expected to attract 1,000 delegates, and events in 2010 and 2011 for the Infection Prevention Society.
