The British Orthopaedic Association (BOA) have confirmed that P&J Live Aberdeen will host their 2021 Annual Conference. Bringing around 3,000 of their members to the region, one of the UK’s largest medical conferences will take place in the Baker Hughes Conference and Exhibition Hub at P&J Live between the 21st and 24th September next year.

BOA is the Surgical Specialty Association for Trauma and Orthopaedics in the UK. Providing national leadership, a unifying focus, and charitable endeavour by caring for patients, supporting surgeons and transforming lives.

Justine Clarke, Chief Operating Officer at BOA commented, “We are delighted to bring the British Orthopaedic Association Congress to P&J Live, Aberdeen in 2021 and excited about and the opportunity to return to Scotland at this state-of-the-art venue.

The events space will help maximise the opportunities for creating a large and engaging exhibition and provide our delegates with a unique Congress experience.”

P&J Live is Scotland’s brand new event complex, encompassing 48,000 sqm of world class multi-purpose event space including, seven conference suites, three exhibition halls, eleven meeting rooms, and a superior 9,000 sqm arena. Offering organisers a flexible and technologically advanced space for their events.  

Nick Waight, Managing Director at P&J Live stated, “We look forward to welcoming BOA to Aberdeen and to our brand new event complex. Our new venue has really put Aberdeen on the map, situated just 1.5 miles from the airport, and only an hour flight from London we are more accessible than ever. We are hugely proud BOA have chosen to hold their conference and exhibition in Aberdeen in 2021, and to showcase the facility and city to our new visitors.”

P&J Live is the most sustainable venue of its type in the UK, and is on course to achieve BREEAM excellence which is the highest environmental standard possible.

The region has thrived with recent investment, including the opening of Europe’s largest new road scheme, the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route, Aberdeen International Airport and new harbour developments creating an energised, connected and revitalised city.

Chris Foy, Chief Executive Officer, VisitAberdeenshire said: “The Convention and Events Bureau has been working collaboratively with the P&J Live team to help attract high calibre business events, that will in turn, bring new visitors to the region.
