The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has confirmed it will return to Bournemouth for the professional association’s annual congress next year.
The Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) will host near on 4,000 delegates from 21-25 June.
The return to the south coast for the RCN’s major annual debating forum was welcomed by the RCN’s Conference and Events Manager Brian French.
“It’s great for RCN members that RCN Congress is returning to the south coast after a number of years away. It is always a pleasure to work with the team at the BIC and we look forward to delivering another successful event.”
Pat Coyne, BH Live Director of Venues, added: “We have been working closely with the organisers to bring the event back to Bournemouth and are delighted RCN will be returning in 2015. With up to 4,000 delegates attending over the congress period, an estimated £5.6m will be injected into the local economy through business tourism, sustaining in the region of 200 local jobs.”
Running alongside the business of Congress will be a large programme of professional, educational and social events. The UK’s largest exhibition of nursing products and services also takes place during the week.
