Exhibition Centre Liverpool welcomes 60,000 visitors since reopening

by Joe Gallop

Exhibition Centre Liverpool has welcomed over 60,000 visitors since it was able to reopen from 21 June.

The waterfront venue recently hosted the UK’s biggest Indoor Funfair across 12 days which featured 25 different fairground rides, inflatable attractions and games with visitors from all over the UK.  

The venue has also hosted the Gin to My Tonic Show, FIT XPO, Can You Dance? and The Outdoor Trade Show.

Following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions from 19 July, the venue launched its Covid Excellence pledge for all clients and customers. This includes the continuation of hygiene and cleaning measures such as the use of Electrostatic Microbe Cleaning Solution carried out before and after every event and hand sanitiser stations across the venue.  

Other measures include cashless payment for retail, optional check-in QR codes and digital signage to support hygiene messages. 

The venue said it continues to work closely with the Association of Event Venues (AEV), Visit Britain, Public Health England and Public Health Liverpool to look at any additional safety measures that may be required.

Exhibitions taking place at the centre this year include The North West Wedding Show, Kidz to Adultz North and Liverpool Comic Con.  Trade shows include Pulse Live and The Foot and Ankle Show.  

John Lowery, director of Events and Attractions, which organises the Indoor Funfair, said: “After the challenges of the past 18 months, we were determined to go ahead with the event as soon as restrictions were lifted.  

“Organising 36 sessions across 12 days was pretty ambitious but the amount of visitors to the Indoor Funfair has been phenomenal.  We are grateful to the entire team at the exhibition centre who supported us and helped us to deliver such a huge event so soon after restrictions were eased.

“The excitement and enthusiasm from all our visitors was fantastic and we can’t wait to come back again next year.”

Adrian Evans, assistant director of conference and exhibition sales, said: “We have worked closely with all our event organisers throughout the pandemic to ensure we were ready to go when we were able to.

“The atmosphere at all our exhibitions since we have reopened has been electric, proving that visitors are eager to return to live events.

“We look forward to working with exhibitors, suppliers and partners to deliver more fantastic events in the future and to continue the momentum of our reopening phase.”
