ACC Liverpool has unveiled a fly-through video of its new exhibition centre, a year ahead of its opening.
The film which can be seen below, provides views of the 8,100sqm Exhibition Centre Liverpool in different configurations, from an exhibition to a conference to a standing concert.
The show reel also illustrates how the venue can be subdivided into three 2,700sqm halls.
It shows the glazed atrium which offers views across the River Mersey and the city’s UNESCO World Heritage site. The virtual tour maps out outdoor exhibition space known as The Deck, meeting rooms, catering facilities and the location of the on-site integrated 216-bedroom Pullman hotel.
It also illustrates the bridge link between the £66m centre and hotel and the existing ACC Liverpool site, home to BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena.
The venue will be capable of hosting trade and consumer exhibitions; large national and international conferences with attached exhibitions; large banquets; concerts and sports events on a national and international scale. Concert space will be for up to 10,000 people standing.
In its first year of operation, it is expected to host about 50 events and attract more than 250,000 visitors.
In March, ACC Liverpool announced the first six business wins to take place at the new £40m exhibition centre on the waterfront.
Confirmed trade and consumer exhibitions so far include the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers FPS Expo, MCM Expo group and the Allergy and Free From Show North. Contracted conferences include Renewable UK.
The arrival of the £40 million Exhibition Centre Liverpool will increase the existing 7,125sqm of exhibition space at ACC Liverpool to 15,225sqm.
International construction company ISG, responsible for the construction of the 6,000 seat London 2012 Velodrome, will deliver the scheme.
Denton Corker Marshall, who designed the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, is the architect.
