Hat trick of healthcare wins for Liverpool venue

Three organisations involved in fitness and health have booked events over consecutive years at the ACC in Liverpool.
The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) is to host more than 1,500 guests for its annual conference in 2010, with the event set to take over all meeting rooms and the ACC’s 3,725sqm of exhibition space. 

“We have been looking for something fresh for some time now, both in terms of venue and destination,” said Sharon Vanloo, scientific events manager at NCRI. “ACC Liverpool is one of the newest convention centres in the UK and is also one of the few UK-based convention centres that can accommodate our event under one roof, which is an important consideration for us.

“There are also strong ties with oncology in the region, including the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and the Marie Curie hospital to name but a few.”
The European College of Sport Science (ECSS) will also be hosting its 16th annual three-day congress at the venue in July 2011.

Professor Tim Cable from ECSS said: “ACC Liverpool provides a multipurpose centre for a conference venue. The well-designed space provides us with the opportunity of hosting the many concurrent sessions we need for our expected attendance of 2,500 delegates, with ample accommodation for trade exhibitors to display adjacent to catering facilities.

“Its location, within close walking distance to reputable hotels and attractions such as the Albert Dock, also provides a welcome benefit.”
Completing the hat trick, the venue will also welcome an event for the Roald Dahl Haemostasis and Thrombosis Centre, part of Royal Liverpool University Hospital, in July 2012. Technology, award winning green credentials, accessibility and un-paralleled customer service levels have all proved to be key influencers for clients choosing ACC Liverpool.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome such a prestigious list of clients to ACC Liverpool,” said the venue’s general manager Jacquie Rogers.

“The clients that are coming to us are a reflection of the commitment that we have to surpassing expectations and to really driving Liverpool forward as the UK’s pre-eminent destination for meetings, events and exhibitions.”
