Expo centre takes shape on the Mersey
A world class exhibition and events facility on Liverpool’s waterfront, to be known as the Exhibition Centre Liverpool, is rapidly taking shape as Billington Structures has started the steel erection programme.
Main contractor ISG is delivering the £40M project that consists of a three hall exhibition centre and an integrated hotel, both of which will be connected to the existing Liverpool BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena via a covered walkway.
Exhibition Centre Liverpool will also include a public atrium, food and beverage outlets, meeting rooms and a business centre. The three exhibition halls will all cover an area of 2,700m2 and will be separated by movable walls. The facility will be capable of hosting trade and consumer exhibitions, concerts and sports events on a national and international scale.
It is estimated that the venue will support 1,300 jobs and contribute £40M per year in economic benefit to the Merseyside area.
