Infection 2009, from 11-13 November at Birmingham International Conference Centre, will be one of the biggest gatherings of infection control specialists ever seen in the UK.
Around 500 delegates are expected to hear from speakers including Professor Neil Ferguson, who has advised both the Government and the World Health Organisation on the H1N1 virus.
Manchester-based Comtec was selected by the Federation of Infection Societies to manage the event in partnership with the Royal College of Nursing, British Geriatrics Society and the Department of Health.
The event is one of Comtec's largest briefs of the year and will include speaker sessions, live filming, exhibitions and a gala dinner.
Comtec account manager Rachel Bullock said: "When the H1N1 strain was confirmed as being pandemic in June we realised that now, more than ever, the need to bring together some of the world's experts was vital."
