HIC hosts Olympic celebration during International Confex

Eddie the Eagle Edwards will be the guest of honour at

Harrogate International Centre’s (HIC) Olympic themed party during International Confex.

Guest are being invited to meet the HIC team and discover more about the venue’s new facilities at the event which is being held at the panoramic Tower Bridge West Walkway on March 6th (7pm). The uplifting celebration will start with a drinks reception followed by a three course dinner.

HIC is exhibiting at International Confex March 6-8 at ExCeL (stand B1020) to showcase the new halls and how they can be used for a wider variety of events therefore improving the overall visitor experience. Halls H and G add more space to larger events and offer exhibition space with great flow from the 2,000 seat auditorium. The halls also provide exhibitors with a blank canvas allowing them to create an unique atmosphere for their event.

Angus Houston, HIC’s director, says: “With the Olympic Games less than six months away we thought it was only right to mark the occasion with a themed party, and we’re delighted to be joined by Eddie the Eagle Edwards. The Olympics is not the only thing to celebrate in 2012. We recently completed the £13 million redevelopment at HIC which has significantly enhanced the facilities we already offer. It is an exciting time for everybody at HIC and we want to share our achievements with those who have made the venue a success. We also want to show people, particularly those who have never been to HIC before, why we stand out from other venues around the country. We look forward to meeting old and new faces, and invite them to join our celebration as we enter the next phase of HIC’s development.”
