The event will be held at the ACC Liverpool, Kings Dock, Liverpool Waterfront, Liverpool, Merseyside, L3 4FP. (SAT NAV L3 4BX)


The UCISA23 Leadership Conference is coming back to Liverpool for the first time in 10 years and we can't wait. On the banks of the River Mersey at the heart of the city's iconic waterfront, ACC Liverpool is a world-class facility in a unique setting.

Liverpool City Centre inscribed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 2004, it is a modern, vibrant city, proud of its rich heritage and world trade roots, famous for its friendly people, and known worldwide for football . It is the home of the most listed buildings, museums and art galleries out side of London. It is also safe to say, as the birthplace of the Beatles, Liverpool can lay claim to being the City of Pop especially as it can boast it has produced the most number one hit singles in the UK.

This year we are using three hotels, the Pullman Liverpool, Kings Dock, Liverpool, L3 4FP, Jurys Inn Liverpool, 31 Keel Wharf, Liverpool, L3 4FN, and Staybridge Suites Liverpool, 21 Keel Wharf, Liverpool, L3 4FN. All three hotels are located within a couple of minutes walk of the ACC.

Please not: Hotels will be randomly assigned depending on how many nights are required.
