Debut Scottish Home Show outgrows space

AECC Night

The Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) has revealed The Scottish Home Show’s debut exhibition will have to expand its planned hall space due to demand.

The exhibition takes place at AECC on 1 and 2 September. It was originally due to take place in Boyd Orr, the venue’s second largest hall at 1,496sqm, which then extended to the two adjoining multi-purpose suites - the Crombie Suite [471sqm] and Gordon Suite [559sqm].

However, following demand from local and national businesses, the show has now been moved into AECC's largest hall The Arena, which has 7,320sqm.

“We are delighted at the levels of interest displayed by exhibitors, the show is shaping up to be even better than first anticipated, with lots of exhibitors showcasing a wide range of products, we are certain there will be something for everyone,” said Scottish Home Show director Darren Ross.
Aberdeen City Council is planning to pay off the AECC’s debt of £26.2m in loans to the authority.
