ACC to Extend

Liverpool’s Arena and Convention Centre is to benefit from the addition of a new exhibition and events complex open for business in September 2014. Costing £40m, the new venue will consist of 8,100m² of space which will be sub-dividable into three interlinked pillar-free exhibition halls, each 2,700m² in size.

The extension to the existing ACC Liverpool (comprising Echo Arena and BT Convention Centre) will also see the development of an on-site upscale 200-room hotel. The new facilities will be connected with a sky bridge directly into ACC Liverpool, making it the only interconnected arena, convention centre and exhibition facility in Europe.

Leader of Liverpool City Council, Joe Anderson commented, “This is great news for the city and a huge statement of confidence in Liverpool.  A new state-of-the-art exhibition hall will enhance the excellent waterfront facilities of the Echo Arena and BT Convention Centre, making Liverpool a top UK venue for exhibitions, events and conferences.”

David McDonnell, chairman of ACC Liverpool, added, “The feasibility work we have undertaken demonstrates that this development will be self-funding and will begin to attract millions of pounds of new business to the city as soon as it opens.”

The new venue is set to be built by a partnership of Liverpool City Council and ACC Liverpool and managed by the existing ACC Liverpool management team.
