New conference centre for Southampton Solent

Southampton Solent University is to get a new conference and exhibition space at East Park Terrace as part of a £30m development.
 
Work is underway on the campus, with a projected completion date of early 2016.
 
In addition to two bespoke lecture theatres, an atrium suitable for large exhibitions, product launches and gala dinners will form the central hub of the new block.
 
The centrepiece of the new building, designed by architects Scott Brownrigg, will be a multi-functional suspended ‘pod’ housing a lecture theatre and viewing platform above.
 
The new conference centre will feature two large flexible suites comprising of: four meeting rooms with breakout hospitality areas overlooking the atrium; a bookable business centre with reprographic facilities; plus a new café and VIP dining area.
 
A dedicated hospitality kitchen will be installed to provide catering at the new facility.
 
The conference centre will be available for hire by the local community as well as business and community groups.
