The International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham has announced it is to host the British Nuclear Medicine Society and the Association of Breast Surgery for the first time, as well as welcoming the return of the British Association of Dermatologists.
Organisers of all three events cited the ICC’s central location as one of the key factors for choosing the venue.
The British Nuclear Medicine Society has confirmed a three-year deal with the ICC for 2016, 2017 and 2018. They are expecting around 500 delegates to attend their two-day conferences.
Charlotte Weston, chief executive officer for the British Nuclear Medicine Society said: “We have been impressed by the experience and enthusiasm of the ICC team and we are looking forward to hosting our conferences there. Its central location means that it is easy for all of our delegates to get to and there is a wide range of hotels within walking distance of the ICC for them to choose from.”
The Association of Breast Surgery will hold its conference for the first time at the ICC in 2018 and will return again in 2021 and expects to attract 800 delegates. A spokesperson for the association said: “We have chosen the ICC Birmingham for our forthcoming conferences based on its central location, high standard of facilities and competitive all-inclusive price.”
The British Association of Dermatologists is returning to the ICC for its Annual Meeting in 2016 and 2021. Organisers expect the three-day event to welcome over 1,000 delegates.
Catherine Newhall-Caiger, business development director for the ICC said her team was looking forward to hosting the medical association events. “They will contribute £3,307,137 to the local economy,” she said. “Our experienced team will work in partnership with the organisers to ensure their event objectives are met and that they have a great experience with us.”
