International Convention Centre Wales and The Celtic Collection

Two years in the building and many more in the planning, the breathtaking new International Convention Centre Wales opened its doors to welcome the world to Wales in the autumn of 2019.

An £83.7m joint venture partnership between Celtic Manor Resort and Welsh Government, ICC Wales was built on the recommendations of industry focus groups meaning the facilities are client-focused and deliver for the needs of organisers, exhibitors and delegates.

Key features include:

  • A 4,000 sq m pillar-free exhibition hall (divisible into 6 sections) which is capable of holding 2,400 people for a gala dinner
  • Auditorium with tiered seating for 1,500 people
  • 15 flexible meeting rooms
  • Generous atrium entrance with 2,500 sq m outdoor plaza
  • Natural daylight in all meeting rooms and the main hall
  • Networking spaces on all levels

Two hours from London, ICC Wales is just a stone’s throw from the M4 and yet a world away in the scenic grounds of the Celtic Manor Resort… daylight floods into the venue, meeting rooms have floor to ceiling views of ancient woodland, and walkways lead to ponder pods in this stunning natural environment.

ICC Wales is part of The Celtic Collection which includes five hotels, 10 self-catering Hunter Lodges, eight restaurants, three championship golf courses, luxury spas and an abundance of adventure activities.

The Celtic Manor Resort played host to the 2010 Ryder Cup, golf’s greatest team tournament, and the 2014 NATO Summit, the largest gathering of world leaders ever held in the UK. For eight of the last nine years, it has been voted the UK’s Best Hotel at the Meetings & Incentive Travel Awards.

A new Tŷ Hotels brand was launched in 2019 and The Celtic Collection’s expansion continues in 2020 with a new departure into managing properties in partnership with other owners.
