Cloth Hall Court

17 December 19: Hosted in Leeds for its very first time, MEETinLEEDS, the conference and events team for the University of Leeds, were proud to welcome the annual Photodynamic Therapy Symposium 2019. This was the sixth international photodynamic therapy event to take place, bringing clinical and scientific experts together from across the world to gain a greater insight into the true value and efficiency of photodynamic therapy in medicine.

Previously hosted in London for the last five years, the esteemed conference has moved up North to take advantage of everything that the city of Leeds has to offer. Attracting over 50 international delegates from all over the world, including France, Switzerland, China, Canada and the US, the conference kicked off at the iconic Herringbone Suite at the Cloth Hall Court with a series of presentations and exhibitions, and was followed by a dinner for the keynote speakers. Notable attendees included one of the UK’s leading cardio thoracic surgeons, Professor Keyvan, as well as Professor Ron Allison from the US and Professional Xiuli Wang, Head of PDT Dermatology in Shanghai, as well as many more leading industry professionals.

Enhancing the lasting legacy of the conference, delegates will also be offered the opportunity to further discussions and collaborate with likeminded individuals as part of the upcoming association, The European Platform for Psychodynamic Medicine, which will be launching shortly.

Professor Keyvan Moghissi, Clinical Director, commented: “We’re thrilled with the success of the Photodynamic Therapy Conference at Leeds. It was really refreshing to visit an entirely new city and take advantage of all that Leeds has to offer. We saw a lot of new and exciting scientific research being shared and it was fantastic to see so many industry experts all under one roof. We would like to thank both MEETinLEEDS for their support and expertise, and we hope that our delegates thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”

Harriet Boatwright, Sales and Marketing Manager at MEETinLEEDS, commented: “We’re delighted that the prestigious conference chose Leeds as the city to host its sixth annual event. Not only is it a positive result for the city, but it also presented a fantastic opportunity to collaborate and work closely with multiple organisations across Leeds, including the team at Conference Leeds and Cloth Hall Court. We hope that both the university and the city has left a lasting impression on all delegates, and we look forward to working closely again in the future!”
