Presentation. MCI, the foremost global association, communication and event management company, have chosen to bring their prestigious management board meeting to Liverpool in 2010. The award winning ACC Liverpool, comprising BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, will be the backdrop for the noteworthy event in April 2010. The two day event will draw together leading conference and event figureheads and decision-makers from MCI’s global offices.

Following in the footsteps of other previous host locations (Monaco, Montreal, Paris and Amsterdam) ACC Liverpool will be given a platform to present the city of Liverpool as a key business travel destination for meeting and event planners.  Already voted 3rd as the ‘city Conde Nast Traveller’s readers would like to visit for a short break’, ACC Liverpool also sits in 86th position of worldwide top conference destinations according to ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association) rankings.

ACC Liverpool was chosen not only for its world class event facilities, but also for its location and accessibility from major European airports. Erica Fawer, Director of Event Operations for MCI commented: “We wanted to experience more of the UK and have heard great things about Liverpool as an up-and-coming conference destination and cultural hub.  The team at ACC Liverpool have been more than welcoming and have covered every angle possible to make our experience of Liverpool a success.”

Kerrin MacPhie, Head of Sales for BT Convention Centre Liverpool said, “We feel privileged to be welcoming MCI next year, as we can demonstrate what we can do as a conference and event venue and also capitalise on what the city has to offer for in-bound delegates. We are delighted that we have outrun the more traditional UK destinations and have been given this opportunity to spread the appeal of Liverpool.”
