The Echo Arena was the flagship venue for the launch event of Liverpool: European Capital of Culture back in 2008 and has since played host to a string of international events, including the MTV Europe Music Awards, BBC Sports Personality of the Year, Cirque du Soleil and Davis Cup tennis, plus concert performances by Elton John, Bob Dylan and Beyoncé.
The Echo Arena is not just a performance venue; it includes 22 hospitality boxes, food and drink concessions, a 1600 space car park, bike racks and a drop-off point, and is fully accessible to all of our guests. Backstage we have two star dressing rooms, six dressing rooms, a green room, a warm up area with lockers for visiting sports teams and private office space for promoters and producers during their time in Liverpool. Using the Echo Arena in tandem with the BT Convention Centre means there’s plenty of space for corporate hospitality and VIP entertainment areas, too.
The arena can also be used in conjunction with the BT Convention Centre for exhibition and event space, with a floor space of 3,400 m2 and both mother and daughter grids, allowing the flexibility of moving the position of the stage and lighting.
