Squaremeal Venues and Events Emeal 9 February 2017 - International Convention Centre Wales

Funding has been secured for ICC Wales, a major international convention centre to be built at the Celtic Manor Collection close to Newport, south Wales. 

Work will begin next month on a venue that is due to open for business in June 2019, with room for 5,000 delegates across 26,000sq m of event space.

On-site facilities will include a 1,500-seat auditorium and a 4,000sq m pillar-free ballroom – the largest of its kind in Europe – with capacity for up to 2,400 guests at gala dinners. 

Celtic Manor’s chairman, Sir Terry Matthews, says the centre will be a ‘real game changer’. Drop the resort’s events team an email for more details.
