While Harrogate had been hosting conferences and exhibitions since the end of the Second World War, the 2000-seat main auditorium opened in 1982 and was notable as the host of the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest. The venue has since expanded over time to include eight exhibition halls offering 16,500 square metres (178,000 sq ft) of space as well as ancillary facilities including a Holiday Inn (formerly Moat House) hotel. Further refurbishment and expansion is planned between 2009 and 2014 to increase the exhibition space up to 18,500 square metres (199,000 sq ft) at an estimated cost of £45 million.
The Royal Hall holds over 1,000 people, whereas the Queens Suite holds up to 600.
The current[when?] director of the conference centre is Mr Simon Kent.
