When it opens, the £66m Exhibition Centre Liverpool will double the facilities at ACC Liverpool, providing a further 8,100sqm of flexible exhibition space suitable for conferences, concerts and international sporting events. It will also incorporate an integrated four-star Pullman hotel.
King commented: "Exhibition Centre Liverpool is the most exciting development taking place in the UK exhibition industry at the moment. To be involved in its opening year provides a tremendous opportunity to promote Liverpool as a new destination for consumer and trade exhibitions and to secure interesting events."
Jensen added: "While stand-alone exhibitions are a relatively new market for us, we have been exploring the sector for some time and have seven years’ experience of delivering high profile events at ACC Liverpool. We are looking forward to working closely with organisers to make sure every exhibition in our new venue is a success."
Exhibition Centre Liverpool is expected to host about 50 events and attract more than 250,000 visitors in its first year of operation. It recently secured the European Association for International Education (EAIE) annual conference and exhibition as its first major international event, while the RenewableUK conference is confirmed to take place at the venue in October.
