Located at the gateway to South Wales and with easy access from London and the South, the international convention centre has wide attendee appeal.
The result of an exciting joint venture between the Welsh Government and Celtic Manor Resort,
ICC Wales opened in September 2019 and is giving all other convention centres a run for their money!

Perfectly balanced state-of-the-art meeting and event facilities and luxury accommodation combined.
The sitting of the new centre as a next-door neighbour of Celtic Manor Resort means that meeting and event planners can avail of all the space of an “ICC” with none of the hassle of split groups across many hotel sites. And because Celtic Manor Resort has five-star credentials and facilities, the residential attendee experience is never going to be hit-and-miss.

Sustainable ICC with a no plastic on site promise.
An internationally benchmarked and competitive meeting and event space in a non-city setting is the USP for this ICC. With impressive sustainability credentials, and surrounded by 15,000 trees, this ICC can offer outdoor space to match the sheer scale of indoor space making it an easy first choice for product launches and outdoor experiences.

This is not a venue; it’s a destination.
The combination of meeting and accommodation spaces across ICC Wales and neighbouring Celtic Manor Resort makes this a meeting and event planners easiest-ever pick. But there is nothing “blank canvas” about this destination. ICC Wales has been purpose-built to international convention centre standards but with added character and personality. This new build has a distinctly Welsh look-and-feel, complete with large red dragon!

Pillar free exhibition space.
Everything about ICC Wales is large-scale but space is comfortingly versatile and purpose-built to make smaller spaces feel intimate and just as important. Proudly boasting tiered auditorium seating for 1500 and 4000 sqm of pillar free floor space. Experienced meeting and event planners will take careful note of the 2500 sqm outdoor plaza by the main atrium entrance.

Interactive digital live masterclasses
A wide range of inspirational experts deliver digital masterclasses which are free to join. ICC Wales Live give you the opportunity to learn during live-streamed interactive sessions and connect with like-minded people. Designed to empower you to unlock your own inner brilliance and gain confidence through new skills and ideas, whilst making the very best of the ones you already possess.

A former Ryder Cup and NATO Summit host site, this ICC is set to become a leading international host venue for global meetings and events.
