Opening in 2019, this exciting development is the largest entertainment arena in the North of Scotland, boasting world-class conference and exhibition facilities for organisers and delegates across the globe, and sustainably powered by local, renewable energy sources. Replacing the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, with 48,000 sq metres of multi-purpose space and an additional 10,000 sq metres of outdoor expansion space, TECA offers larger conference halls and suites, a superior arena, spacious hospitality boxes and a high-end restaurant. The development also comprises three on site hotels including the adjoining 4-star Hilton with 200 bedrooms, and the Aloft Hotel with 150 bedrooms.
With unrivalled public transport connections, the new venue is located right next to Aberdeen International Airport - the UK’s most connected regional airport, a few short minutes from the city’s new western peripheral route, and in prime position for the improved rail links between Aberdeen and the North of Scotland, due to be completed next year.
TECA is the UK’s single largest investment of its kind and one of many occurring across Aberdeen, as the energy city looks beyond oil and gas and continues to grow in a range of exciting new industries. Aberdeen International Airport is undergoing a £50million expansion, while £30 million is being spent on rejuvenating the city’s Art Gallery. New hotels are going up across the city and the ongoing Marischal Square Development, with its refreshing mix of offices, cafés, restaurants and hotels, adds to the city centre’s vibrant and cosmopolitan appeal.
Aberdeen is the gateway to the north east of Scotland, a region world famous for its award winning castles, whisky distilleries and golf courses, as well as its stunning natural scenery, from the Banffshire Coast to the Cairngorms National Park.
