Wales C&I offering will be boosted by the opening of Ffos Las racecourse in June.

The £20m racecourse, located near Llanelli in South Wales, will offer event space for hire year-round.

It will have a 32sqm restaurant overlooking the racetrack, with capacity 150 delegates for a banquet and up to 500 guests for a reception.

The racecourse will offer eight hospitality boxes that can be used for board meetings and fine dining.

Ffos Las Racecourse general manager Jon Williams said: "Ffos Las is the third racecourse to be built in Wales and will hopefully be at the top of event organisers' lists when looking for a unique sporting venue in the heart of the Welsh countryside."
