“Being a member of Club Liverpool has opened doors to an amazing network of individuals and organisations with one thing in common – our love for this great city, and the desire to share it with others! By working collaboratively and collegiately, our individual organisations have shared best practice, and provided support and guidance to each other to achieve great things. Welcoming 5,000 International Educators to Liverpool in September 2016 for the EAIE conference was really just the beginning of the journey for our Universities in the region. Without the support of other Club Liverpool members, it would not have been possible!”.
Gemma Smith, Head of International Recruitment, Liverpool John Moores University
‘Club Liverpool is playing an active role in promoting the city of Liverpool and over the past couple of years I have witnessed the fruits of this with more events and conferences being held in the city. I have been involved with club Liverpool for a number of years now and found them to be a very efficient and friendly team and will definitely call upon them for advice once I decide on organising the next conference in Liverpool.’
Professor Rafid Al Khaddar, Head of the Department of Civil Engineering, Liverpool John Moores University
‘Whilst some might argue that Liverpool sells itself (and it is a very popular destination for my colleagues in Europe), attracting a major medical conference to a city is a massive challenge.
It has taken ten years to secure the European CF Conference to Liverpool and all along this journey Club Liverpool have been invaluable in responding immediately to all demands, entertaining evaluators and supporting me with information and advice.
The successful attraction of major events depends not just on a first class venue, but also a first class team ready to jump the many logistical and political barriers that get in the way. We hope that over 3000 delegates will stay for nearly a week in 2019 and this would not have been possible without the support of Club Liverpool.’
Kevin Southern, Professor of Child Health, University of Liverpool
” Club Liverpool gives me a great opportunity to meet many people in diverse disciplines. As an Architect, I firmly believe in the value of learning about my City from all their cross over skills and understanding. Personally, I have come a long way from Lodge Lane and Toxteth and now I have met people in The Town Hall, The Echo Arena, Breakfast in The White Star Building and especially The Main Stand at Anfield. I think all the Ambassadors seem to be proud of their own or their adopted City. For me this is the true Spirit of Club Liverpool.”

‘Club Liverpool helps networking with conference-experienced people and to learn about possibilities and options in Liverpool.’
