Surgeons Commit To ACC Liverpool Until 2020

The Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland (ASGBI) has committed to holding its annual international surgical conference at ACC Liverpool, home to BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, on a 3-year rotating contract until 2020.  Following ASGBI’s successful 90th anniversary conference in 2010 at the venue, the association has confirmed it will return to Liverpool in 2012, 2016 and 2020, the association’s 100th anniversary.

The ASGBI surgical congress currently attracts 2000 surgeons of which 25% attend from overseas.

ACC Liverpool has worked closely with Liverpool Convention Bureau to bring the ASGBI conference, which has an estimated £1.7m economic impact on the local economy, to Liverpool.

Dr Nick Gair, CEO ASGBI said, “ACC Liverpool was one of the only venues to be considered that could, from the outset, accommodate the projected increase of delegate numbers for each year up to 2020.  I am confident that each one of our events at ACC Liverpool will be different due to the variety and flexibility the venue can offer.  The strong links the venue has with Liverpool Convention Bureau and the tourist board has made it easy to manage our events via one contact.  We wanted to be in a venue that breathes with us and with the recent news of the exhibition and events complex it shows just how adaptable and accommodating ACC Liverpool will be by 2020.”

Bob Prattey, Chief Executive ACC Liverpool said, “The collective factors that have resulted in ASGBI’s decision to commit to three years at ACC Liverpool proves our partnership with the Bureau is a winning formula. ACC Liverpool has an exacting record of hosting medical conferences, with facilities suited for large conference groups, as well as destination support in terms of tailored social programmes, further confirming the city’s appeal to this sector.”
