Opened in September 2019, the £333 million complex, delivered by Aberdeen City Council in partnership with Henry Boot Developments, replaced the Aberdeen Exhibition Conference and Centre (AECC) with 48,000 square metres of multi-purpose event space, and boasts world-class conference and exhibition halls, a superior arena, spacious hospitality boxes and a high-end restaurant.
P&J Live is the largest event complex in the North of Scotland, boasting world-class conference and exhibition facilities for organisers and delegates across the globe, all sustainably powered by local, renewable energy sources. The event complex also comprises two on site hotels including the adjoining 4-star Hilton with 200 bedrooms and, the Aloft Hotel with 150 bedrooms. With unrivalled public transport connections, the venue is located right next to Aberdeen International Airport – the UK’s most connected regional airport, a few short minutes from the city’s western peripheral route, and in prime position for rail links between Aberdeen and the North of Scotland.
P&J Live is the UK’s single largest investment of its kind and one of many occurring across Aberdeen, as the energy city looks beyond oil and gas and continues to grow in a range of exciting new industries. Aberdeen International Airport has recently undergone a £50 million expansion, £30 million has been spent rejuvenating the city’s magnificent Art Gallery. New hotels have come on stream across the city and Marischal Square, with its refreshing mix of offices, cafes, restaurants and hotels, adds to the city centre’s vibrant and cosmopolitan appeal.
