Tuesday 19th May 2009
Reception in Exhibition
Following last year's successful event, there will be a drinks reception and buffet in the exhibition area starting immediately after the end of the day's scientific programme. This will give delegates the opportunity to peruse the Exhibition area and network with colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere. The reception will be open until 1900h and will be followed later in the evening by the Focus Fringe event.
2009 is the tenth anniversary of the now traditional Focus fringe event so there is no better place for it to be held than Liverpool's world famous Cavern Club. For those with musical talents there will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform live on stage at the home of the Beatles. Otherwise delegates can simply enjoy the experience and atmosphere of this unique venue.
Wednesday 20th May 2009
The conference banquet will be held at the impressive St George's Hall which was nominated as a world heritage site and re-opened in April 2007. Coaches will transport delegates for the short journey from the ACCL to St George's Hall in the city centre. Pre-dinner drinks will be followed by dinner and entertainment in this magnificent venue.
