ACC Liverpool to host 2010 AIPC conference




ACC Liverpool has won its bid after it has won a bid to host the 2010 AIPC conference. The event, which is attended by CEOs and senior managers from the world’s most prestigious venues, is regarded as a major coup for ACC Liverpool, home of the BT Convention Centre, coming so soon after the venue’s opening in January.

The AIPC – the International Association of Congress Centres - represents 160 members in more than 53 countries across the world and has held its conference in cities including Quebec, Edinburgh, Montpellier, Graz and Singapore, where this year’s event is currently happening.

Jacquie Rogers, general manager of the BT Convention Centre, said:  “AIPC is an organisation which puts excellence in the industry at its very heart. To be a member of such a prestigious body is an honour in itself; to be chosen as the host venue for its conference is quite something else.

“ACC Liverpool has been open for just a few months and we have strived to make the facility world-class in every way. It is a real vote of confidence that after such a short time we’re able to make an announcement of this magnitude.’

Edgar Hirt, president of the AIPC, said: “ACC Liverpool is one of our newest members and so we’re delighted to be making this announcement. We have been extremely impressed with the facility and believe our members will find its considerable environmental credentials of particular interest.”

ACC Liverpool, the £164m development on the King’s Waterfront, opened in January 2008. As well as the state-of-the-art BT Convention Centre, it also comprises the 10,600-seat Echo Arena. The BT Convention Centre features a 1,350-seat auditorium, 18 breakout rooms and 7,000 square metres of exhibition space.
