Flexibility. When the exhibition centre opens, ACC Liverpool will become the only purpose-built interconnecting arena, convention and exhibition centre in Europe.

Buyer verdict
Karen McCormack, head of events for UK Oracle User Group, says: "The venue really lent itself well to us logistically and the ACC Liverpool team provided us with a five-star service, developing relationships with our team on a professional and personal level. I would recommend ACC Liverpool to other event organisers planning an event on this scale."
