Liverpool’s Arena and Convention Centre has reported an 11 per cent increase in revenue in the year to March.
The venue,which incorporates the BT Convention Centre and the Echo Arena, saw income rise from £13m to £14.5m.
The venue claims a net profit of just under £250,000, compared to a pre-tax profit of£104,000 for last year.
The City Council-owned venue said it attracted 655,000 people during the year, with stand out convention business being the Liberal Democrat autumn conference.
ACC Liverpool Chief Executive Bob Prattey said: “To experience an increase in turnover in the current climate is extremely encouraging, not only for ACC Liverpool but for the entire city region which benefits from our visitors and the events which we stage to the tune of £100m each year.”
