ICC Belfast Goes Under the Microscope

ICC (International Convention Centre) Belfast has announced it will host the Microbiology Society Annual Conference from 8 to 11 April 2019. The Society’s Annual Conference attracts attendees for the largest annual gathering of microbiologists in the UK and Ireland. More than 1,600 delegates from all over the globe will visit the city over four days attending over 30 sessions during the comprehensive scientific programme.

Chief Executive of the Microbiology Society, Dr Peter Cotgreave, said: “We can’t see them but microbes are everywhere, and affect almost all aspects of our lives. By bringing together thousands of microbiologists in one place for a festival of knowledge-sharing, we can make an impact on urgent problems like new and emerging diseases through to long-term issues like antimicrobial drug resistance and food security. We can answer very big questions by studying very small things.”

The venue officially repositioned its conferencing brand from Belfast Waterfront to ICC Belfast in October 2018, a change that is vital to delivering 50,000 conference delegate days each year by 2021 across the city.
