Look of Celtic Manor convention centre revealed

South Wales Argus: FUTURISTIC: How the Celtic Manor convention centre will look FUTURISTIC: How the Celtic Manor convention centre will look

THE Celtic Manor have revealed how their planned Wales International Convention Centre will look.

The conference centre, designed to hold 4,000 delegates, was given the green light by Newport council last week.

It will be the largest facility of its kind in Wales and the south west of England.

The centre is planned to extend over 20,000 square metres, with the main auditorium holding 1,300 delegates. This is planned to be a flexible area which can be divided into smaller spaces.

A separate 4,000 square metre main exhibition hall will be able to accommodate up to 2,000 guests.

A further 15 meeting rooms will cater for different sizes and types of meetings and events, complementing the existing convention centre facilities at Celtic Manor.

The new conference centre will also have audio visual facilities, green rooms and production offices, and a multi-storey car park with 1,500 spaces.

It reminds me of the Pentagon (with more sides) are they aiming for the US visitor?

Think a dedicated M4 junction is needed to avoid totally backing up Chepstow road.
And would advise they try and put in an Olympic class sports venue like the ExCel in East London.

looks superb thanks again to sir Terry for the facilities and investment he has brought into Newport, still wishing he would consider putting a few quid Newport Dragons way, if your reading this Sir Tel a successful rugby team would have plenty of coverage to a huge audience which could have a knock on effect to the area including the Celtic Manor Resort

Rugby Union is a minority sport in the UK and the world in general. The real money and prestige is in Association Football.
