Cardiff highlights business tourism potential

The 88-acre International Sports Village and a multi-purpose complex which will provide a 15,000-seat arena and a 1,500 seat auditorium are just some of the showcase projects that Cardiff is investing in, as the city hopes to attract increased business tourism to the region.

Cardiff set out its city centre development plans to the international real estate world at MIPIM 2014, the property market exhibition held in France last month.

Construction is also about to begin on an Olympic-standard, twin-pad ice arena for 3,000 spectators. Plans are also in place for a real snow 150m ski slope and a mixed use tower incorporating offices, hotels, bars, restaurants and up to 200,000 square feet of sports related retail stores. 

Nigel Roberts, chairman of Cardiff Business Council said that Cardiff offered exciting opportunities for business investors.

"Cardiff is a European capital city and offers a skilled workforce, great accessibility and connectivity and an excellent business culture," he said."There is now a vast range of property investment and development opportunities available across the city, together with excellent business accommodation for expanding and inward-locating businesses."
