Previously named Harrogate International Centre it was renamed Harrogate Convention Centre in April 2017.
While Harrogate had been hosting conferences and exhibitions since the end of the Second World War, the under 2000-seat main auditorium opened in 1982 and was the host of the Eurovision Song Contest 1982. The venue has since expanded to include eight exhibition halls offering 13,700 square metres (147,000 sq ft) of space as well as ancillary facilities including a hotel. Further refurbishment and expansion took place between 2009 and 2014.
The Royal Hall holds 1,000 people, whereas the Queen's Suite holds up to 600.
The June 2017 director of the conference centre was Mr Simon Kent.
