Built in 1984 the BIC has become one of the UK’s premier venues for conferences, seminars and world class entertainment.
The BIC has 4 main auditoriums. It hosts conferences, exhibitions, meetings, large music concerts, dance and comedy performances. The Purbeck Hall is converted into an ice-rink in the winter an a roller rink during the summer.
The Bic overlooks Bournemouth beach, and is very close to the town centre. Some of the big names that have appeared here recently include Stereophonics, Jimmy Carr, Kaiser Chiefs and Duran Duran. The BIC also hosts annual dance competitions and is a popular venue for large conferences.
