Royal Pharmaceutical Society conference win for ICC Birmingham

The ICC Birmingham has won the contract to host the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) annual conference.
The event, to be held 9-10 September and for 400 delegates, is expected to be worth £360,000 to the local economy.
The RPS conference is the showpiece event in the society’s calendar offering a diverse range of topics from all sectors in pharmacy. Leading professionals will come together to share the latest offerings from pharmacy research and a large exhibition will showcase new products and services offered by the pharmaceutical industry.
ROS’ Events Development Manager, Phillip McShane, said: “As the professional body for pharmacists and pharmacy we’ve been listening to what our members want. They told us they wanted our annual conference to be in an exciting, engaging and easily accessible venue. The ICC offers us that opportunity.  
“We now have over 44,000 members from across England, Scotland and Wales, so Birmingham felt like the natural home for the conference and we are delighted to be working with the ICC to develop what will be a fantastic showcase event for pharmacy practice.”
ICC’s GM, Paul Rutherford, added: “It is brilliant news the RPS has decided to hold its annual conference with us. More and more associations of this type are choosing the ICC as their preferred venue.”
