Exhibition and conference


The 2016 exhibition is being held in Purbeck Hall (above) and the conference in Tregonwell Hall. Both are at the heart of the Bournemouth International Centre’s exhibition facilities.

Located on the first floor, both are easily accessible and will provide the ideal backdrop to this year’s event.

Gala dinner


The 2016 Gala dinner is being held in Bournemouth Pavilion – a stunning Art Deco theatre located a stone’s throw from the town’s beautiful coastline and the BIC.

Opened in the 1920s, this magnificent venue has retained its splendour and elegant style and is Bournemouth’s regular home for West End stage shows, Opera, Ballet and much more.

Refurbished in 2007, the Ballroom provides an atmospheric backdrop for gala dinners, banquets, receptions and other social functions.


The venue is well signposted throughout the town and from the A338 (Wessex Way) into Bournemouth, and located about five minutes from Bournemouth Interchange station (by bus or taxi).

BIC has a large multi-storey, pay-and-display car park attached, with 700 spaces, accessible bays and a covered walkway into the venue. The car park is open 24 hours and well-lit with sensory lighting.

The Pavilion is located adjacent to the BIC.
