Bob Prattey, chief executive of The ACC Liverpool Group, said: "The financial year from 2015 – 16 was a year of rapid growth for The ACC Liverpool Group with the opening of Exhibition Centre Liverpool in September 2015 and Pullman Liverpool in February 2016. This expansion has enabled us to enhance our facilities and host bigger and better exhibitions, national and international conferences and entertainment events, thus contributing more economic benefit to the local economy.
"The operating loss we are reporting 2015 – 16 is due to the delays in the completion of our new venues. We incurred extended pre-opening costs which were set against only part year trading – in the financial year 2015 -16 the hotel only traded for 50 days and Exhibition Centre Liverpool for six months.
"We are forecasting a further increase in revenues and a return to overall group trading profit as we retain existing events and bolster the programme with major events such as the British Style Collective presented by The Clothes Show."
