Flexible meeting spaces

Make our space your own. Private and open plan areas can be arranged just the way you want – as theatres, banqueting spaces, classrooms, boardrooms, press and organiser offices, with access to dedicated catering and bar services.

With everything branded, booked out, signposted and arranged ready for a brilliant few days at conference. You can run fringe meetings, small exhibitions and workshops, alongside your conference or exhibition, and still find plenty of room for a drinks reception and fabulous gala dinner.

If all you need is a convenient place to hold an emergency meeting or get together for regular project reviews, we’ve got everything you need – from informal lounges to exclusive boardroom suites.

The same technical and operations crews who build, manage and operate large events will work with you to shape a bespoke environment to make sure everything runs smoothly. Discover more about business meetings.

Fabulous food and drink

Business events are all about discovery, discussion and debate of ideas and strategies that shape the future. We create opportunities for that to happen anywhere. A chance meeting or renewed acquaintance over coffee or dinner could spark an idea that goes on to transform the way business is done. And the more wow factor you put into the social side of events, the more engagement you’ll get back from your delegates.

Every day during your event, we’ll be serving drinks and light refreshments to speakers, exhibitors and delegates from our Terrace bars, cafés and carts. And for the creating eye-catching themes and original menus design, with fine ingredients chosen for flavour, looks, quality and sustainability. Created with passion. Served with style.

Peace of mind from an operator you can trust

Keeping everyone safe

Bournemouth International Centre offers a safe, welcoming and eco-friendly environment for staging world class events. The latest venue-related, health and safety guidelines are embedded in both our culture and security processes and we are continually reviewing our performance to reflect the current and emerging security landscape.

Greening our venues

Our operator, BHLive, has a clear agenda to deliver a continuous and measurable reduction in the local, national and global environmental impact of our business activities. Guided by the Greenmark accreditation, we are deploying environmental and utilities strategies relevant to our sector across the portfolio of venues, leisure centres, cafés & bars.
