The Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) is an award-winning conference, events and entertainment venue, situated in the heart of Bournemouth's bustling town and offering panoramic views of its internationally-acclaimed coastline. Whether it's the thrill of a live show or event, the buzz of a conference, the wisdom of an exhibition or the cultural insight of fine art, the BIC offers so many things to do and see and some many reasons to visit this beautiful town!
The BIC has been open since 6 September 1984 and has played host to thousands of events including party political conferences, annual association events for the likes of the Police Federation, live acts and entertainment including comedy, music and arts. Events for the whole family
The truly multi-purpose venue provides the largest licensed capacity on the South Coast for up to 10,000 visitors and features 4 main auditoria: the Windsor Hall, Purbeck Hall, Solent Hall and Tregonwell Hall. The BIC's flexibility lends itself in accommodating multi-hall conferences, exhibitions, meetings, large music concerts, dance and comedy performances to perfection.
