AECC conference sales team are embarking upon a mission to spread the word across Europe of the exciting developments currently taking place in Aberdeen including the state-of-the-art new venue opening in 2019.
In May the team will travel to Vienna to take part in the World Associations Congress with city partners VisitAberdeenshire. This is the first time AECC have exhibited at this global event and look forward to networking with the prestigious associations who will be in attendance.
Later that month, the team head to Frankfurt to exhibit at the key industry event, IMEX – taking the stand along with VisitScotland and other prominent partners including Gleneagles Hotel and VisitAberdeenshire.
In June the destination is closer to home as the team from AECC head to London for The Meetings Show. Again exhibiting alongside VisitScotland, AECC will be sharing the exciting news about the new venue which boasts a massive 47,000m2 of internal event space; made up of 32,000m2 subterranean space. But that’s not all, it also has 9,000m2 of arena space capable of seating 10,000 people, a 6,000m2 hall divisible into three equal sized spaces, four suites with the ability to divide into 11 event spaces plus an additional 10,000m2 of outdoor event space!
There is also a packed calendar of conferences and events heading to the granite city. From 16th-18th May AECC will play host to the three day Society of Radiological Protection (SRP) conference. This national event has been assisted in coming to the city through subvention funding from VisitAberdeenshire and match-funded by VisitScotland.
The Oceans conference will return to Aberdeen, for the second time, in June. Organised by the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) and the Marine Technology Society (MTS), Oceans was last held in Aberdeen in 2007. Professor John Watson of the University of Aberdeen, local co-chair for the event, has been key in securing this conference for the city.
