Thoracic conference returns to Bournemouth

The British Thoracic Society’s Annual Conference took place recently, welcoming more than 500 delegates to the two-day event at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC).

The event opened in the BIC’s Tregonwell Hall, with an exhibition running alongside the main conference sessions in the BIC’s Purbeck Hall, featuring more than 30 exhibitors, including global companies GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca.

The conference saw Sue Hill, chief scientific officer for the Department of Health, take to the floor, and topics such as obesity and respiration and changes in respiratory medicine through the ages were covered. 

It was estimated that the event boosted the local economy to the tune of £300,000 through delegate expenditure.

“It’s great to see the British Thoracic Society back in Bournemouth,” said BIC managing directort Peter Gunn.

“Over the last few years it has been a deliberate decision to target the medical association market and we have made significant inroads in doing this, having hosted some of the biggest national and international medical events in the industry.”

Recent statistics value Bournemouth’s business tourism at £115 million, of which the BIC and Pavilion contribute £65 million annually through the conferences and exhibitions staged at the venues. The remaining £50 million is a result of conferences, events and meetings at other venues in Bournemouth, often facilitated by the Bournemouth International Conference Bureau (BICB).”
