ACC Liverpool’s facilities are unique in Europe; the award-winning BT Convention Centre (which houses a 1,350 seat auditorium, 18 break out rooms and 3,725 m2 of exhibition space - combining to 7,125m2 once opened out to the arena floor) and the 11,000-capacity Echo Arena are interlinked by a central galleria which joins the two venues - the only design of its kind on this continent - providing you with a unique landscape to stage your event.
By using ACC Liverpool you will be bringing your event to one of the most environmentally friendly venues in Europe. Through initiatives such as rainwater harvesting, wind turbines and low energy lighting we’ve created a venue which produces just half the C02 emissions it would without any environmentally-friendly measures, whiles using 20% less electricity. Not only this, our on-site recycling means that we send zero waste to landfill.
