ACC Liverpool has completed the latest phase of its two-year, £2.3m refurbishment designed to enhance its facilities.
Recent developments include the redesign of BT Convention Centre’s galleria and central atrium to introduce additional facilities such as new organiser offices and meeting rooms, as well as a new boardroom facility sponsored by E.ON.
The coffee shop has undergone a complete refurbishment and expansion, offering a comprehensive menu and a coffee blend unique to ACC Liverpool, all courtesy of the venue’s in-house caterers Centerplate UK.
The catering area will now be known as 1207 Coffee, inspired by the year Liverpool was founded and its rich history of trade, combined with a contemporary high street coffee store design.
The Business Centre and Guest Relations areas have been combined into one unit, allowing more space for delegate registration during events.
Other changes include a bigger cloakroom, new furniture in public areas and updated technical equipment including LED lighting throughout.
The star dressing rooms in the artists’ village of the arena have also undergone a refurbishment including improved lounge, dining and bathroom facilities in each; new furniture and a change in layout and design.
ACC Liverpool Chief Executive Bob Prattey said: “We continually assess client feedback so that we can provide the best possible facilities for visitors. This latest phase is part of a two-year plan which has so far included, among other enhancements, the refurbishment of VIP boxes in the arena; Wi-Fi upgrades to improve bandwidth and connectivity and a wider range of technical equipment. We are now finalising plans for our future investment in ACC Liverpool.
“The developments have been completed in the summer as we prepare for a busy autumnal calendar of events which includes the National Association of Pension Funds, the European Society of Surgical Oncology and National Cancer Research Institute.”
