About Us

Torquay’s purpose built conference and exhibition centre, the Riviera International Conference Centre, offers three multi-functional conference, exhibition and banqueting halls plus seven syndicate rooms accommodating from 5 – 1500 delegates, for any type of event: a conference; meeting; training session; banquet; gala-diner; retirement party; birthday party; drinks reception or product launch.

All catering is prepared in-house by the Centre’s own team of chefs, one of the few purpose built venues with its own professional caterers ensuring value for money and retains its reputation for innovation and excellence.

RICC Also incorporates leisure centre and restaurant.

Located just off the seafront, the RICC enjoys a wide range of accommodation within walking distance, and Torquay’s dedicated Conference Bureau offers a Free Delegate Accommodation booking Service.
