London cements its position as a global centre for medical conferences and events

April 28, 2019

The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) has announced that it will return to London in 2020, overcoming stiff competition from other key European cities. EASL’s decision is a huge vote of confidence in London’s position as a world-class city for conferences and events, as well as a leading centre for medical research.

The five-day event is expected to bring together over 10,000 hepatologists, doctors and medical professionals, to share recent data, present studies and findings, and discuss the hottest topics on liver disease. Delegates attend from all over the world, making it a truly international networking opportunity in the capital.

London is home to hubs for scientific excellence including the Francis Crick Institute, Imperial White City, the Institute for Cancer Research and The Alan Turing Institute. Cavendish Venues hosts a huge number of medical events, in 2019 they played host to amongst others Diabetes UK, the European Society for Cardiology, the European Society of Aesthetic Gynaecology etc etc.

Suzanne Singleton, Head of Associations at London & Partners added: “London is a truly global city and EASL’s decision to host their event in London offers further proof that we are a leading destination to host an international associations congress. Our global talent pool, world leading research in science and innovation and access to some of the best experts makes London the natural choice to host a medical associations congress. We look forward to welcoming EASL’s delegates from all over the world for this event and to experience everything else that London has to offer.”
