    The Philadelphia-based American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has chosen to hold its 2015, 2019 and 2024 Annual Meetings at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, citing improvements the center has undergone to revise antiquated work rules.

    “Philadelphia was a natural choice for our 2015 Annual Meeting,” Margaret Foti, CEO of AACR, said in a statement. “The city is not only our hometown, but it is also an epicenter for groundbreaking cancer research and related biomedical science.”

    During the 2015 Annual Meeting held April 18-22 next year, more than 18,500 people are expected to attend, resulting in more than 30,000 hotel night bookings and more than $41 million in economic impact.
