Alzheimer’s Conference to Be Remembered in Wales

Alzheimer’s Research UK Conference – the UK’s largest dementia research conference – will be hosted at ICC Wales in March 2020, an announcement made even before the completion of the construction of the Centre.

The two-day annual conference will welcome dementia experts from across the UK and internationally, featuring presentations from researchers and clinicians as well as opportunities to network and forge collaborations. A forum for researchers to hear the latest investigative findings into Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias – from discoveries in the laboratory to clinical perspectives – will also be provided.

Once complete in 2019, ICC Wales will provide total floor space for meetings, conferences, exhibitions and events of 26,000sqm. Sponsored by Celtic Manor and Welsh Government, the Centre will accommodate 5,000 delegates and include a 4,000sqm pillar-free main hall, a 1,500-seated auditorium, 12 flexible meeting rooms, a double-height glass atrium and a 2,500sqm outdoor plaza.
