Graphics conference on way to Llandudno.

A COMPUTER graphics conference will attract over 400 delegates to Llandudno and boost the local economy by pounds 200,000.

Venue Cymru plays host to Eurographics 2011, the 32nd annual conference of the European Association for Computer Graphics, to be held next year.

Following their successful bid to bring the event to North Wales, Bangor University will be organising the landmark conference.

Eurographics 2011, which will utilise the arena and meeting rooms, will take place over a week in April and be worth an estimated pounds 200,000 to the town's economy, notably hotels, shops and restaurants.

Following previous conferences in Norkoping, Sweden (2010), Munich, Germany (2009) and Crete, Greece (2008), Venue Cymru is looking forward to welcoming local, national and international members to the popular seaside resort.

Jonathan Roberts, Senior Lecturer at the School of Computer Science, Bangor University, told Business Post: "Our expertise in computer graphics has been key to attracting the major conference to the region.

"Our research group travels widely, presenting the findings of our research at conferences, so it's fantastic to be able to play host to our international research colleagues this time around.

"We're delighted to be able to showcase North Wales to such a prestigious audience."

Adrian LaTrobe, Venue Cymru Conference and Events Manager, added: "We are delighted to welcome this prestigious international event to North Wales.

"Our business delegates are very important to Llandudno and play a keen part in maintaining the viability and popularity of the resort.

"We look forward to welcoming the Association's members to Venue Cymru for what we are sure will be a highly successful and memorable event."

The Eurographics Annual Conference brings together graphics experts from around the world to describe the latest developments.

It offers them an ideal opportunity to find out what is happening and to meet the people behind the developments as well as offering a cost-effective training mechanism for specialised subjects.

The European Association for Computer Graphics is the only truly Europe-wide professional computer graphics association.

Through a world-wide membership, Eurographics maintains close links with developments in the US, Japan and other countries, promoting the exchange of scientific and technical information and skills on a global scale.
