Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) is home to the BHGE Arena, established in 1985 and sits as the North of Scotland’s largest conference, arena and exhibition centre. Our range of events varies, from large exhibitions and conferences, live entertainment, small to large meetings and banqueting events. The current venue is a multi-purpose space capable of hosting conferences of up to 2000, banqueting events up to 1,400, an arena capacity of up to 8,500 all standing.
In 2019 the new purpose built, state-of-the-art venue will open its doors. The new venue will be more accessible offering larger spaces for events including an arena capable of a 12,500 capacity. The site will include a 200 bed, 4-star Hampton by Hilton Hotel connecting direct to the venue on the ground and concourse level and further to this will be another two hotels providing an additional 300 bedrooms on-site.
