Conference centre new £13m halls to open

HARROGATE International Centre’s new halls will be opened in December.

The HIC’s £13m expansion project, creating Halls H and G at the venue, has taken 18 months to complete and was funded by Harrogate Council and Yorkshire Forward.

It increases the building’s capacity by 20 per cent, adding 3,100m sq of exhibition space and banqueting capacity for 1,500 guests.

HIC director Angus Houston said: “The project not only benefits event organisers and visitors to HIC but the whole region.”
