Launch of the International Convention Centre Wales
Terry Matthews, the founder and chairman of Wesley Clover and primary supporter of Alacrity Global, has taken on the challenge to construct a world-renown convention centre in Newport, Wales.
The £83.7m International Convention Centre Wales (ICC Wales), will bring conferences from around the world to Newport. The project at the Celtic Manor Resort (another initiative of Mr. Matthews), will be able to host 5,000 delegates and be capable of staging major party political conferences. It will be delivered and managed via a new joint venture company in which the Celtic Manor Resort and the Welsh Government have an equal 50% stake.
ICC Wales, is scheduled to open in June, 2019.
“This International Convention Centre has been many years in the planning and I am delighted that we are now in a position to build and deliver this facility that will be such an asset to Wales.” – Terry Matthews
