ACC Liverpool

ACC Liverpool has won its bid for the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO) International Meeting, following a campaign by one of the city’s ambassadors.

The four-day meeting will be held on 17-22 October 2013 and is expected to attract 2,500 delegates from more than 60 countries.

Dr John Green, a Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool and Consultant Medical Oncologist at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre,worked with the Liverpool Bidding Partnership to bring the society’s biennial conference to ACC Liverpool. He is one of a group of ambassadors and affiliates that work with the venue and the city region to attract events to Liverpool.

Dr Green said: “ESGO is the world’s leading gynaecologic oncology society and, as Liverpool progresses to become a world leader in cancer care, it seemed a logical development to bring the international meeting to Liverpool.”

ACC Liverpool Director of Sales, Kerrin Macphie, said: “This event is a fantastic example of the importance of our ambassadors and affiliates in helping us to target and win events.

“We are working with this important group of individuals as they are key drivers to developing the city’s economy.”

Previous locations for the congress include Berlin, Istanbul and Milan.
