Business professionals set to benefit from the largest events exhibition in the South West

Celtic Manor Resort, Newport
After a successful introduction in Scotland, the next step sees the Venue Expo, co-located with PA Expo head to the South West. Aiming to replicate the success of Edinburgh, we will be at the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport on the 24th of May 2017.

The Celtic Manor is a fantastic venue, recently voted the UK’s Best Hotel at the Meeting & Incentive Travel Awards held in London. This was the sixth time in the last 7 years that this prestigious venue has been awarded this title.

This further confirms Celtic Manor’s position as the leading destination for events in the UK, the accolade recognises another outstanding year for Celtic Manor when it once again returned record revenues, acquired a neighbouring 148-bedroom hotel and secured the final funding to begin constructing the new International Convention Centre Wales (ICC Wales) for 5,000 delegates.

Celtic Manor Resort Sales Director, Danielle Bounds says: “We are delighted to be hosting Venue Expo 2017 and bringing this prestigious event to Wales for the first time. Venue Expo has built a reputation as one of the leading MICE industry exhibitions and hosting this event gives us an excellent opportunity to showcase the fantastic facilities we have for staging meetings, conferences and events here at Celtic Manor. When we exhibit at other show venues, we always say you really need to visit Celtic Manor to truly appreciate the size and scale and quality of our facilities and the great thing about hosting Venue Expo 2017 is that we can show the delegates all that while they are here for the event.”

The inaugural show will feature unrivalled networking for all attendees to benefit from, including groups such as Womenspires & Zokit just to name a few. With a variety of networking taking place, there really is something for everyone. Not to mention a variety of informative seminars, covering topics from marketing to networking, as well as high quality exhibitors, all offering a large variety of products and services. This year’s shows will see the team at UKFE – organisers of the Venue Expo, deliver their strongest profile to date! All have been working hard to ensure that the inaugural event in Newport is a great success by using the most current and in demand participants such as Stage Sound Services, Newport City Council, Vale Resort & more... as they continue to strengthen the title of a leading MICE industry and business focused event across the UK.

“We are all very excited as it’s an incredible time for the Venue & PA Expo. Cementing these events as leading Business and PA focused exhibitions in the North has been a long but worthwhile journey. The fact we have expanded these profiles to include Wales is incredible. I am exuberant for the debut in Newport and look forward to working with our exhibitors and meeting all the attendees.” - President of UKFE Brett Bienias

All delegates will have the chance to return to the Celtic Manor Resort, the stunning setting for Venue Expo and PA Expo, and treat a guest to a luxury overnight stay including dinner and breakfast. To be included in the prize draw, simply drop your business card off at registration!
