MOBO ACC Liverpool, home to the BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, has won the contract to host the Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards 2012.
 
The event, which attracts over 7,500 music fans is expected to generate more than £1m in economic impact for the city region when it takes place on 3 November.
 
The MOBO Awards are held annually in the UK and over the past 17 years, MOBO has showcased and honoured many of the music industry’s finest talent from around the world with performances and attendances from  artists including Janet Jackson, Destiny’s Child, Dionne Warwick, Justin Timberlake, Tina Turner, Dizzee Rascal, Marley Family, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Usher and Amy Winehouse, to name a few.
 
Bob Prattey, Chief Executive of ACC Liverpool, said: “The MOBO Awards chose Liverpool as the first ever location outside of London to host their prestigious event in 2010, building on the city’s reputation of having a strong musical heritage.
 
“The Awards will be broadcast across BBC platforms so they will provide another fantastic opportunity to show the world that Liverpool successfully hosts significant music events.
 
“As November’s Awards will take place on a Saturday night, the potential for economic impact is huge with thousands of visitors expected to stay in the city for the weekend.”
 
The Awards will take place at Echo Arena Liverpool whilst the adjoining BT Convention Centre will provide additional green room space for artists.
