Our team work collaboratively with the P&J Live at TECA with the aim of bringing national and international conferences and events to the city of Aberdeen.
At the end of February 2022, P&J Live in partnership with the University of Aberdeen, hosted a dinner to provide insight into the world of business events. In collaboration with Aberdeen Convention and Events Bureau and VisitScotland the “Bidding for Global Business Events” dinner helped to highlight the importance of bringing national and international association conferences to Aberdeen. More can be read about the event here.
Following the pandemic, face-to-face business events have returned to the venue which has been given approval to hold indoor events with a capacity over 2,000 by Aberdeen City Council. Floating Offshore Wind, organised by RenewableUK and Scottish Renewables, was the long-awaited first in-person / hybrid event running over two days on September 15th & 16th. In quick succession, the team at P&J Live delivered one of its largest ever conferences, The British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) Annual Conference from 21st to 24th September.
These conferences are a sign of things to come, with the venue having secured a portfolio of new conference and association business event wins for 2022 & 2023. Highlights for University colleagues include
- The Association of Surgeons in Training Annual Congress 2022
- The Association for the Study of Medical Education Annual Scholarship Meeting 2022
- The British Society for Haemostasis and Thrombosis Annual Conference 2022
- The Alzheimer’s Research UK Annual Research Conference 2023
The relationship builds on historic successes at the original venue AECC.
