The Layouts

Flexible layout configurations make ACC Liverpool a unique experience in Europe. A tiered auditorium, break-out rooms, exhibition spaces and an event arena can be split, joined and arranged in countless ways. At ACC Liverpool the space fits you, not the other way around.

ACC Liverpool, home to BT Convention Centre, Echo Arena and Exhibition Centre Liverpool offers outstanding event space flexibility, suitable for a wide variety of events. Each part of the venue can be individually configured or used as a whole. The BT Convention Centre’s impressive auditorium seats 1,350 delegates. Two seating “drums” or sections revolve 180 degrees to create three separate, self-contained auditoria - that can be used simultaneously - of 250 (x2) and 850 tiered seats. The convention centre upper level is also home to 21 versatile breakout rooms with capacities ranging from 10 to 500.

Our versatile multi-purpose hall (Lower Level) is 3,725m², with space for 1,800 dinner guests, ideal for banqueting functions and exhibitions. If you need even more room, the arena floor’s 3,400m² of clear floor space can be included to seat up to 7,500 for a conference, or create a free-flowing exhibition area. In addition, its 22 hospitality suites can be used for small meetings or VIP offices.

The BT Convention Centre, combined with the arena floor, gives event organisers a total of 7,125m² of freeflowing exhibition and conference space.

Upper Level Rooms and Auditorium

Upper Level

The Upper Level of the BT Convention Centre is ACC Liverpool’s home of conferencing. Here you will find a range of rooms which can be configured in many different ways. Room 3, which can be divided in half, features spectacular views across the Mersey, and black out screens if the sun is low in the sky. The auditorium is central to the centre, with its 1,350 theatre-style seats, impressive stage, and even more impressive revolving drums. These two areas can be rotated 180 degrees and used for 250-seat lectures, or closed off to make the main auditorium smaller. It’s a brilliantly flexible yet effective facility.
