Bournemouth, iconic shows by the sea

The Bournemouth International Centre (known as the BIC) is one of the largest exhibition venues in southern England.

As an award-winning premier events venue, ideally situated close to Bournemouth’s beautiful seven-mile beach, gardens and town centre, it’s easy to see why this is a popular venue for exhibitors.

The centre boosts Bournemouth’s tourism industry, bringing in thousands of people into the area throughout the year – helping to make the town an all-year-round resort.

The BIC has capacity for up to 10,000 visitors and features four main halls. The centre’s main exhibition area is the Windsor Hall, which has a capacity of 7,000.

With its cafés overlooking the sea, meeting rooms and relaxing lounge areas, the BIC is the perfect venue for meetings and networking events at an exhibition show.

The venue hosts several renowned annual exhibitions such as the BIC Wedding Show, the UK Dance Exhibition, as well as the Autumn Wedding Fayre and Festive Gift Fayre.

How to get to the BIC centre

Both Bournemouth Airport and Southampton Airport are close to the BIC, and run internal flights to and from most major UK cities and various European destinations.

With Southampton Airport only 40 mins to Bournemouth via train, and Bournemouth Airport a 10 min drive or taxi journey to the venue, flying is the quickest way to get to the BIC from areas outside the south-west.

With direct trains from London, Birmingham and Manchester it is also easy to get to Bournemouth by train from most parts of the UK.

The BIC is only 1.5 miles from the town’s train station.

If you’re travelling by car, from the M1, M27 or A31, the main route into Bournemouth is the A338.

Follow this road to the town centre and then simply follow the well-posted signs to the BIC. The postcode you need for your sat nav is: BH2 5BH.

Catering for more than exhibitions

Plans for an exhibition and conference centre in Bournemouth began in 1980, and the town council finally gave it the official go-ahead in 1982.

Built at a cost of £18m, the Bournemouth International Centre opened in 1984, featuring two halls and a leisure pool.

The Purbeck Hall was added in 1990 for £6m.

Then a significant £22m refurbishment in 2004 saw the addition of the venue’s fourth hall, the Solent, replacing the swimming pool, which increased the capacity further.

As well as its entertainment events, the BIC is best known for holding its political party conferences – with all major UK political parties returning to the venue for their annual conferences.
