Exhibition Centre Liverpool (ECL) showcased its new halls to the public for the first time with the Liverpool Wedding Show drawing in crowds over the weekend (12-13 September).
More than 150 exhibitors from the wedding market showcased their products and services at the new waterfront venue, the latest addition to ACC Liverpool, now home to BT Convention Centre, Echo Arena and Exhibition Centre Liverpool.
Bob Prattey, chief executive of The ACC Liverpool Group, said: “This was our first consumer exhibition in Exhibition Centre Liverpool. The venue was transformed with catwalks, cars and bands among the many fantastic displays and there was a real buzz among exhibitors and visitors.”
Joanne Dainty Fenna, managing director of the show said: “As a Liverpool-based exhibition organiser, it is fantastic to have a facility such as this in the city. It has enabled us to grow our event and ticket sales were the highest they have ever been.
“We are already planning our next event at Exhibition Centre Liverpool in January 2016.”
Highlights of the Liverpool Wedding Show included the Wedding Demonstration Garden, The Palm Sugar Live Lounge, VIP Lounge and catwalk shows.
