Took the grand children to the performance of Wizard of Oz - which was a local production. Congratulations to all involved the MECC is a fantastic venue even in the back row with young children they had great views of the stage. The acoustics are brilliant and they could hear perfectly - such a polished professional performance was an absolute delight and I cannot wait to take them to another production thanks to all cast and crew

Our company has now attended two large conferences held at the MECC. The location is excellent, staffing and facilities are great. Access to bring large equipment for display was very well managed. Multiple presentation rooms allowed free flowing seminars to be held

Went and seen Carl Barron, as well as an expo. I think it is good set up, they hold some great shows as well. Parking can be a bit of an issue.
