The EPIC Centre demonstrates world-class standards in the use of environmentally friendly building materials and operating programmes. The venue offers visitors the opportunity to experience the best in corporate and social functions, against a backdrop of total environmental sensitivity.
EPIC – Environment, People, Innovation and Contemplation
The modern and flexible structure incorporates three Halls on the ground floor, with a total area of 1,836m². Full-size roller-shutter doors to the East and West allow vehicular access, making these high-ceiling, light-filled areas an ideal convention and exhibition centre location perfect for product launches as well as a multitude of other event formats including large-scale music festivals and elaborate balls. Acoustic partitions can be used to create smaller, more intimate spaces, or removed to offer one large area for events on a grand scale.
The upper floor offers three adjoining Suites, with the flexibility to cater for between 2 and 200 people, supported by three additional rooms for smaller events or syndicate space. All offer the backdrop of spectacular views over the Showground and lead onto a sheltered terrace on which guests can enjoy fresh air and even open-air dining, weather permitting of course!
In terms of the technical specification, electricity and Cat-6 cabling can be taken to almost any section of the exhibition floor via floor channels. We offer integrated audio visual equipment; each of the Halls and Suites includes a ceiling mounted data-projector, projection surface or screen and facilities to project sound via a range of microphones.
