Major international medical congress comes to ExCeL London

The European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) has announced that it will return to ExCeL London in 2020.

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.

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.

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.

The strength of London’s medical sector has been shown with the city welcoming more and more prestigious medical events over the past few years. In 2018, the city played host to Diabetes UK, the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP), the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES) Annual Congress and the British Geriatrics Society Autumn Meeting.

Samantha Shamkh, Head of Conventions at ExCeL London commented: “We are delighted that the EASL have once again chosen ExCeL and London to host their 2020 congress.

We work closely with all of our clients to understand their specific objectives, whether that’s in terms of growing their attendance, achieving a greater global outreach or increasing scientific content. With the support of London & Partners, we can help our clients to achieve their aims, ensuring that they get the most from hosting their congress with us.

“We look forward to working with EASL, helping them to deliver a successful event outcome for the both the association and their delegates.”
