AMION led the work to secure NWDA/ERDF funding for this development and produced the economic impact appraisal which was critical in securing wider stakeholder support and public sector funding for this high profile investment.
The £165m ACC Liverpool was constructed and opened in 2008. It is a highly successful profitable venue with current plans to expand its facilities with a further investment of £40m which is expected to be completed in 2015. It is considered to be a catalyst for significant additional investment and regeneration in Liverpool and has been successful in attracting the biggest names in entertainment, exhibitions and conferencing. In 2013 it was named as the best UK conference centre at the M& IT Industry Awards which are considered to be the ‘Oscars’ of the industry.
