The Celtic Manor Resort has confirmed major plans to expand
its world-class business and conference facilities, with the addition of a brand
new International Convention Centre for Wales scheduled to open in 2018.
Designed to attract major events from across the world this
will rival any convention facility in Europe, with its state-of-the-art auditorium,
main exhibition hall and associated facilities with capacity for around 4,000
delegates, making it the largest facility of its kind in Wales or the south
west of England.
We have appointed the renowned architects, Scott Brownrigg,
to design the new centre and you can see some of their computer generated

and excellent views. Meeting rooms and breakout areas will benefit from
extensive natural daylighting.
