Share on LinkedIn Email Print View
Bournemouth International Centre BH Live, venue group and provider of conference services, is set to welcome the trade union GMB back to its Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) for the first time since the 78th GMB Congress, 25 years ago.
Set to take place,  5-9 June 2016, the event is expected to contribute £1.5m to the local economy through business tourism and will attract 800 delegates, exhibitors and visitors from across the UK.
“The BIC has a reputation as a premier conference venue,” says Pat Coyne, BH Live Director of Venues. “With a wide choice of networking opportunities and accommodation close to our venue, we have been working with the organisers to prepare for the 2016 Congress - a pivotal event in GMB’s calendar.”
Steve Short, GMB Executive Officer, adds: “The GMB Congress is a key event for us. Consequently the union’s Executive Council takes great care to find venues that are suitable.
“Bournemouth ticks all our boxes as a dynamic and attractive business destination, and the BIC as a secure, respected and well-managed venue. It’s a very different place from what it was 25 years ago. The flexibility and space of the Windsor Hall is perfect for holding classroom-style events like ours. The centre is easy to get to, with plenty of nearby accommodation options for delegates.”
