Affectionately known as 'the Armadillo', it charms conference delegates and visitors with its unique style and practical, comfortable facilities.

The SEC Armadillo, created by world-renowned architects Foster and Partners, was designed from the inside out with the requirements of conference delegates and speakers as the prime consideration. It offers 3,000 seats over three levels yet has the ability to provide an ideal setting for much smaller meetings. It has a substantial stage backed up with breakout rooms, registration area and organiser's offices. Little wonder it has become one of Europe's leading conference venues.

Technical facilities at the SEC are first-class. There's access to AV, lighting and sound capabilities that allow you to stage the most complex and logistically challenging events.

And our staff are always on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly and to help make your conference a success.
