International Convention Centre Wales will be exhibiting for the first time to the UK and an international audience when it attends International Confex later this month
This will be the venue’s first major UK exhibition since opening last September, where it will exhibit on Stand AVG24 in the Association Village Green area.
Flanked by ancient woodland, the convention centre is already becoming known for its incorporation of the outdoors with stunning woodland views, natural daylight throughout the venue and outdoor meeting areas. With 2020 proclaimed the Year of the Outdoors in a campaign from Visit Wales, ICC Wales plans to highlight the benefits of nature for delegate wellbeing.
Sales director for ICC Wales, Danielle Bounds, said: “We’re so passionate about our incredible new venue, every inch of which has been designed to create the best possible experience for event planners and delegates. As the first major venue of its size in Wales and the west of the UK, it is a real game changer for business events and we look forward to introducing many more members of the events industry to our amazing facilities at International Confex later this month.”
The state-of-the-art venue has already hosted many events since it opened last September, from the three-day UK Space Conference for 2,100 delegates, to the two-day Green Party Conference for 750 delegates and An Experience with Arnold Schwarzenegger gala dinner for 1,300.
ICC Wales is a joint venture partnership between the Celtic Manor Resort and Welsh Government. Following two years of construction, ICC Wales opened to welcome its first conference on 13 September 2019. ICC Wales can accommodate more than 5,000 delegates and includes a 4,000sqm pillar-free main hall, a 1,500-seated auditorium, 15 flexible meeting rooms, a double-height glass atrium with views of the surrounding Coldra Woods and a 2,500sqm outdoor plaza.
International Confex will take place from 25-26 February, at ExCeL London.
