ACC Liverpool Heads To IMEX Frankfurt

In March, ACC Liverpool, in partnership with Liverpool City Council, announced plans to build a waterfront exhibition and events complex, creating hundreds of jobs and boosting Liverpool’s economy by an estimated £40m per year.

The centre reports that enquiries are already being received from organisations keen to use the new venue, which will feature 8,100m2 of event space, an upscale hotel and a skybridge to connect it to the existing site.  A planning application will be submitted in March 2012, with work on-site due to start in early 2013. Now 8 weeks on from the announcement, a delegation from ACC Liverpool is heading to IMEX Frankfurt (May 24-26) to promote the facilities that will be on offer when the complex opens for business in 2014.

The venue’s stand will be part of the Visit England Pavilion, and will focus on the themes of ACC Liverpool’s key location, its expansion plans and the accessibility of the city for international events.

Bob Prattey, Chief Executive of ACC Liverpool, said: “We have received some really positive feedback since we announced the launch of the exhibition and events complex earlier this year. “Mindful of the lead time involved in the type of programme planned for the enhanced facilities, it is encouraging to see enquiries being generated and supports our optimism for the project. IMEX presents the ideal opportunity for us to let the world know that Liverpool is firmly on the map for major exhibitions, events and conferences, not only nationally but internationally”.
