We travelled the globe, uncovering what makes the world’s most inspiring convention centres.The result is the internationally outstanding ICC Wales.  Bridging the gap between the grey and the green, industry and environment. 

Opened in September 2019, the ICC Wales delivers groundbreaking events for organisers and exhibitors whilst offering visitors an outstanding, memorable experience. Just a few minutes from J24 of the M4 (10 miles from the Prince of Wales bridge), within easy reach of Cardiff and Bristol airports and main line rail links to Newport.  The best of both worlds, outside a city centre, set in woodland whilst surrounded with hotel accommodation and restaurants. 

An innovative venue. World-class facilities. Fabulously designed.
