Bournemouth International Centre hosts 60th anniversary dental conference

The British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) has praised Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) for its handling of the society's 60th anniversary conference.

More than 800 delegates and 185 exhibitors attended the Annual Oral Health Conference & Exhibition, providing an estimated £600,000 boost to the local economy.

The two-day event was centred around BIC's Tregonwell Hall, with exhibitions in the Purbeck Hall and catering in the Solent Hall.

BSDHT events administrator Ann Craddock said: "One of the great things about the BIC is its layout, including adjoining halls, which suits multi-room events like ours. The fact that we had our own dedicated entrance at the back of the building made the event private and self-contained."

BIC head of conferences, exhibitions and events Clive Tyers added: "The medical association is an important market for us."
