Aberdeen has been chosen as the destination for the renowned Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists Annual Conference in 2015 following a joint bid by the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) and Aberdeen Convention Bureau (ACB).

The conference, which will be linked with the American Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists, will be held in May 2015 over two days and is set to welcome 500 delegates from throughout the world.

The Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland exists to further the clinical and research aspects of the specialty. Members are drawn from every type of hospital both in the UK and Ireland, and from further overseas. Members of the Association are also active in the fields of acute and chronic pain management, and paediatric intensive care. The Association has two meetings a year.

AECC and ACB successfully secured this conference as a joint bid in conjunction with local Ambassador Dr Graham Wilson from the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital who will be part of the conference’s 2015 Local Organising Committee.

Brian Horsburgh, Managing Director of AECC, said: “We are delighted that the Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists has confirmed that AECC Aberdeen will host their 2015 annual conference, which is good news for both the venue and Aberdeen as a City.

We have a great line-up of conferences booked in the coming years and it is brilliant to be securing bookings now for such excellent scientific conferences.  AECC are looking forward to other upcoming prestigious conferences such as The European
Optical Society Annual Symposium 2012; The World Heavy Oil Congress 2012; The
Society of Core Analysts Symposium 2012 and CHRO2013.”

Alesia du Plessis, Sales and Marketing Manager at Aberdeen Convention Bureau, said: “”We were pleased to work with the AECC to secure this major conference for Aberdeen for 2015, which underlines our strong position as an international conference destination and also reinforces the reputation Aberdeen has in areas such as medicine and life sciences. It is also a good example of how successful Aberdeen Convention Bureau’s Ambassador program is, where we work closely with academics at the local universities to bring to the city conferences and seminars in their specialist field or sector.”
