Liverpool’s multi-million pound exhibition centre has secured its first conference. RenewableUK will take place at the venue in October 2015.
Exhibition Centre Liverpool, which will open in spring next year, expects to welcome more than 4,500 delegates, 250 exhibitors and 190 speakers to the three-day event.
In June 2011 ACC Liverpool hosted RenewableUK Offshore Wind and next year will accommodate RenewableUK’s annual conference and exhibition.
The event will take place in the new centre as well as the upper level of the BT Convention Centre.
“We had a positive experience when we held our event in 2011 with strong delegate feedback. Although we love the city and the venue we found that ACC Liverpool was unable to accommodate our expanding exhibition,” said Director of Events, Marketing and Membership at RenewableUK, Garth Halliday.
Kerrin MacPhie, Director of Sales at ACC Liverpool, added: “Exhibition Centre Liverpool will enable us to host large national and international conferences – from new events to those which have already taken place at ACC Liverpool but need to migrate in the future. Our new facility will allow conferences to expand as we do and we look forward to a successful RenewableUK conference in 2015.”
