Association Congress Moves To ACC Liverpool

The leading conference for association, society and institute executives has announced the move of its annual summer Association Congress 2012 to ACC Liverpool, after five consecutive years in London.

Following feedback from delegates, the decision was made to split the congress into the UK National Association Congress - which will take place in December this year - and the International and European Congress which will take place on 15 & 16 July in Liverpool next year.

Over 400 delegates attend Association Congress and range from executive directors to conference and event managers from trade associations, PCOs and regional and international federations.

Damian Hutt, Executive Director for Association Congress commented: “With the London 2012 Olympics in mind, we started looking at a variety of cities around the UK and ultimately chose Liverpool because the venue’s proposal proved to be real value for money while the accommodation options were less than half price when compared to London. With over 100 routes that fly in to Liverpool and a fast train service from London, the city has proven to be an excellent, well connected destination and its accessibility puts both us and our delegates at ease when preparing for Congress.”
