Venue Expo is set to expand into Scotland in 2017 with a show at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). 

Venue Expo and PA Expo 2017 will be co-located at the EICC on 12-13 April 2017. 

Brett Bienias, president of Venue Expo organisers UKFE, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for the Venue & PA Expo. We have made significant progress in cementing these events as the largest MICE industry and PA focused events in the North and they have been absolutely incredible and tantamount to the fact that we have now been able to expand these profiles to Scotland. 

“We have been working on our Scotland proposition for the last 12 months and are very pleased to announce this outstanding news and to be working alongside a world renowned venue such as the EICC.” 

EICC chief executive Marshall Dallas said: “We are thrilled that the EICC has been selected to be the host of the Venue Expo & PA Expo 2017 for its inaugural event in Scotland.  We very much look forward to hosting representatives from venues and event suppliers from the UK and Europe who will exhibit to the thousands of event professionals and PA’s which are expected to attend this high-profile event for our industry.” 

The show at the EICC is in addition to the English leg of Venue Expo, which has made its home at Exhibition Centre Liverpool. The show launched on Merseyside in 2014, with its 2015 edition bringing more than 3,400 attendees hosting more than 800 hosted buyer meetings.

Venue Expo 2016 takes place at Exhibiton Centre Liverpool on 8-9 November, while the 2017 edition is also set to take place at the venue next November.
