Manchester Central Convention Complex has won a three-year deal to
host the Vascular Society Annual General Meeting from 2012 – 2014.
The annual four-day conference, 27-30 November 2012, is expected to
attract up to 800 delegates.
The society’s last conference in Manchester was in 2007, and since then it has held its AGM
at various locations throughout the UK including Liverpool, Edinburgh and Bournemouth.
Commenting on its decision to return
to Manchester Central, the Vascular Society’s chief executive, Jeanette Robey,
says: “Manchester Central has a lot of breakout rooms and the proximity of the
exhibition hall to the auditorium really suits our needs and fits our style of
location was another key factor for us. Our delegates come from all
around the UK, and internationally in many
cases, so accessibility to major motorways, train stations and an airport is
crucial for us,” he adds.
