Work on the 4,000sqm new building is well underway with steelworks now rising from the ground. Once complete, it will almost double the size of the conference centre's event space to around 7,000sqm.

The main conference and exhibition hall, which has a ceiling height of 9 metres is starting to take shape at the rear of the existing facility.

Over the coming months, the steel structure for the 700sqm conference and exhibition Hall 2 and several smaller meeting rooms will be put in place.

Construction work is expected to be complete by the end of the year with the venue being fully operational by spring 2016.
