ACC Liverpool has confirmed three more bookings for its new exhibition centre, six months ahead of its September opening.
The new events confirmed for the £40m Exhibition Centre Liverpool include LiftEx, which will take place in November this year; the Ultimate Christmas Fair, which is also set for November; and the North of England’s Largest Antiques and Collectors Fair, to be held in February 2016.
Amy King, exhibition sales manager at ACC Liverpool, said: “These latest confirmations highlight the diversity of events that we will be able to host at Exhibition Centre Liverpool, from large trade to consumer exhibitions.
“The venue is rapidly progressing and, with just six months to go, we are working closely with organisers to secure a comprehensive programme for when we open our doors.”
Conferences and events already confirmed for Exhibition Centre Liverpool include RenewableUK in October this year; the European Association for International Education (EAIE) in September 2016; the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers FPS Expo, which will take place in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

The venue will more than double the existing 7,125 sqm of exhibition space at ACC Liverpool to 15,225 sqm of integrated and flexible event facilities.
