ACC Liverpool, an interconnected arena and exhibition venue, will host 2,500 cancer experts at the International Meeting of the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO), a medical conference brought by the non-profit gynaecology oncology society.
From Oct. 19-22, gynaecological oncologists, researchers and students from more than 60 countries will descend on Liverpool to learn about new developments in the prevention, treatment and study of gynaecological cancer. The event is expected to generate £5.7m in economic impact.
“This is another coup for Liverpool and ACC Liverpool; we can show off the best of the city to a large group of influential visitors,” said Kate Currie, interim manager, Liverpool Convention Bureau.
This year’s program will include updates on the latest in clinical and laboratory research on gynaecological cancer prevention, treatment and care as well as patient seminars and advocacy group interactions.
“I’ve attended this important event in many worldwide locations but was eager to bring it to Liverpool for its 18th meeting to take advantage of the city’s assets as a world leader in cancer care,” said Dr. John Green, senior lecturer, the University of Liverpool; consultant medical oncologist, Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
As an ESGO board member, Green worked with the Liverpool Bidding Partnership to bring the society’s biennial conference to ACC Liverpool.
“Liverpool’s city ambassadors are an essential element of our success as a business tourism destination, and Dr. Green is the latest example of an expert in his field identifying a global conference and persuading the organizers to bring it to the city,” said Currie.
Congress organizer Kenes was supported by Advantage by ACC Liverpool, an initiative that gives bespoke support for international conference and event organizers where they need it. This will include delegate transfers management from Liverpool John Lennon and Manchester airports.
