City Hall in Numbers
Newport-based International Convention Centre Wales (ICC Wales) is the UK’s newest and most exciting events venue. World-class facilities include a 4,000 sq. m pillar-free exhibition hall, a 1,500-seat auditorium theatre, versatile meeting rooms and an abundance of breakout and networking spaces, flooded in natural daylight.
Built in an £84m joint venture project with the Welsh Government, the venue is highly accessible, just a stone’s throw from Junction 24 of the M4 in Newport, yet it is situated in ancient woodland with floor to ceiling meeting room windows and outdoor breathing space making the most of the stunning environment.
Since ICC Wales opened, it has quickly gained a national and international reputation for the quality of its facilities, service and hospitality. The only venue of its size and type situated to the west of London and south of Birmingham, ICC Wales has also been a driving force in enhancing Wales’ wider reputation as a destination for hosting events. A reputation previously developed by the experienced team behind the venue who managed events such as the NATO Summit and the Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor Resort.
