NewcastleGateshead’s new conference wins show off medical expertise

Delegates from across the globe will be drawn to two major conferences to be held at NewcastleGateshead in the North East of England in 2011 and 2013 that will showcase the medical expertise the destination boasts.
The British Elbow & Shoulder Society (BESS) Conference takes place at The Sage Gateshead in the summer of 2011, followed by the Bone Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA) Conference, which comes to NewcastleGateshead in 2013, at the same venue. Both will bring an estimated £1 million in economic impact to the twin cities and wider region, as well as attracting leaders in these fields from around the world.
NewcastleGateshead conference ambassadors have been instrumental in attracting the events with the support from NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau. One such ambassador is Allan Stirrat, one of the orthopaedic surgeons in the team that presented the successful bid to bring the BESS conference to NewcastleGateshead. The event will see around 500 professionals descend on the destination in the summer of 2011.
"A conference of this kind highlights the latest areas of research and provides a fantastic learning experience,” he said. “Instructional courses at the conference will allow delegates to develop and refine treatment techniques, which can then be used to benefit patients.

“To have leading professionals from all over the UK and further afield here is a real accolade and we thank all our supporters, including the Convention Bureau and The Sage Gateshead for their assistance in securing this conference.”
Conference ambassadors Ian Johnson, consultant ENT surgeon, and Tom Davison, senior chief audiologist at the ENT/Audiology Department, Freeman Hospital, successfully bid for the 2013 BAHA conference at this year’s event in Gothenberg, Sweden.
“Having secured this conference, we are delighted that more than 500 leading figures in this field will be coming here to take part in the debates that take place – leading the way for future advancement,” said Davison.
“The fact we beat off major competition from around the world, including destinations such as Hong Kong, shows the strengths and expertise that reside here and emphasises just what a great place NewcastleGateshead is to hold major conferences.”
