We sat on the left hand side towards the back. We had a great view of the stage but was a little disappointed that people were allowed in once the performances had started so this was very distracting and annoying. Peopel drinking at the bar did not bother to be seated in time and this was quite poor I felt

Not been here before - the staff were very efficient and helpful. I booked seats which looked like they had extra leg-room (block D), but they were just slightly raised, not what it looks like on their website, the plan implies the front row of each block has extra leg room but they don't at all. Still a good venue,... More

This was our first visit to the International Centre and got there early enough to see the support act. However the system for getting people to their seats was so chaotic when we eventually found our seats the support act were just finishing. We were ushered up a narrow staircase at one side of the auditorium but must have spent... More

We have been here twice to see the wonderful Caro Emerald. She described it as "intimate", and I suppose compared to somewhere like the First Direct Arena, it is! The seats are very comfortable, even after two to three hours, and there's enough space between rows for my legs (I'm just over six feet tall) or to get up and... More

The Business Awards ceremony bought me to the centre on Thursday evening. The first problem I noticed was when there was an announcement, we were waiting to be told we could go in be seated. There was a loud crackly message which was completely inaudible. Various staff then came round and ushered us in presumably because they knew we hadn't... More

Arrived late because of Harrogate traffic. Parked in the HIC car park below the centre. No phone signal down there so couldn't pay by phone app and credit cards didn't want to be accepted so had to go in search of cash. Parking is expensive but I guess I expected that. The HIC is remarkably similar to other conference centres... More

Generally I liked the venue - the main auditorium was very large, and the IT and sound worked! The hall used for the exhibition was also good, except that there weren't really enough tables and chairs for lunch. Smaller breakout rooms were good, and the IT worked, which is all one could ask for. In retrospect I did find I... More

It's a very large venue. We were about a 1000 participants and there was still plenty of space for a 1000 more. I've been to venues with smarter floor plans though. I'm someone who really needs to improve my health and in that sense HIC is perfect :-) It is more than a little disappointing though when a place like... More
