Bournemouth International Centre in Bournemouth, Dorset, is one of the largest venues for conferences, exhibitions, entertainment and events in southern England. Additionally, it is well known for hosting national conferences of major British political parties and trade unions.
The venue's Windsor Hall has a concert capacity of nearly 4,100 and is one of the bigger indoor music venues in the UK, often included on the arena tours of major artists. The Solent Hall can house exhibitions or hold up to 2,000 people for standing music concerts. The Solent Hall replaced Bournemouth International Centre's well-known swimming pool and wave machine in 2004.
Managed by social enterprise BH Live in partnership with Bournemouth Borough Council, Bournemouth International Centre is operated alongside its sister venue, The Pavilion Theatre and Ballroom.
