AECC Seeks New Sponsor for Iconic Northern Lights Tower!

Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) has announced today that a new sponsor is being sought for the Centre’s iconic Northern Lights Tower. The Centre, which hosts over 600 events and welcomes over 300, 000 people through its doors each year, is one of Scotland’s premier conference, exhibition and entertainment venues.

The Northern Lights Tower is located at the front of the Centre, adjacent to Ellon Road, which sees an average of 23, 000 cars pass by each day. The Tower is visible from Aberdeen’s Beach Boulevard and is a key landmark of the City. The Tower itself can be used for cocktail and drinks receptions and provides excellent panoramic views. It is also seen in the majority of press photos taken at AECC.

The Conference and Exhibition Centre is uniquely placed in heart of the Oil and Gas Capital of Europe (Aberdeen). As the National Energy Exhibition Centre, AECC attracts over 30 high-profile national and international Oil and Gas events to the North East of Scotland each year; including Offshore Europe, Oil & Gas UK Share Fair, Subsea UK, Unconventional Gas Conference and DEVEX (which took place last week) and the All-Energy Exhibition and Conference, which starts today, and is expecting in the region of 9, 000 people over the two days.

The AECC Arena also attracts some of the biggest names in comedy, rock, and pop each year, with Boyzone, Joe Bonamassa, Jessie J and Stereophonics set to play the Centre in the next few months, as part of the 2013 line-up.

Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s MD, says: “We are seeking appropriate brands to form long-term partnerships with. The Tower is a key part of the Centre’s identity and it is an exciting opportunity for a business to gain high visibility in front of those attending events here, as well as all of those passing by on their way to and from the City Centre. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for a company to secure a unique marketing presence and make a massive impact.”

AECC are welcoming interested potential partners now with a view to announcing a new Tower sponsor in mid-2013, prior to Offshore Europe 2013.
