Wound Expo will take place over two days on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th September at the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool.

Because ACC Liverpool is a new building, some satellite navigation devices may not instantly recognise it.
You can rectify this by trying one of the following actions:

i) Use the postcode L3 4BX, with the following co-ordinates - LAT:53.396007 LONG:-2.99118 (all satellite
navigation units have this function).

ii) Enter the city as ‘Liverpool’ and the road name as ‘Queen’s Wharf’.
We also have several bike racks positioned on the riverside and in the multi-storey car park should you wish
to cycle here. They are covered, free to use and secure.

are visible on the major routes into the city. ACC Liverpool is situated on the Kings Dock directly adjacent to
