One of the most memorable conference venues in Cardiff
Named as one of the most memorable conference venues in Cardiff, the Principality stadium doesn’t just offer a venue for rugby and football matches, but a versatile space for many events – concerts, speedway, rugby, football, exhibitions, corporate launches and gala dinners.
10 delegates to 74,500...
The Principality Stadium offers six large lounges and 113 hospitality suites and has the capacity to hold events as small as 10 guests in a hospitality box for a meeting or corporate launch or up to 74,500 in the main stadium for concerts or exhibitions. The £121 million Principality Stadium, which is Europe’s largest stadium, was also the first sporting venue with a fully retractable roof, making the stadium as the leading edge as a multi-purpose, mulit-faceted event venue.
The Principality Stadium was recognised as the UK’s first sustainable event stadium by the British Standard for Sustainability Management Systems for Events. The BS8901 certificate rewards the venue’s management of the social, economic, and environmental impact of the stadium events.
Plans for a new 175 bedroom hotel
Located in the centre of Cardiff, The Principality Stadium has plenty of amenities, out of conference experiences and accommodation options on its doorsteps. Plans have been approved for a new four-star luxury hotel on Westgate Street, close to The Principality Stadium, which will have the capacity for 175 bedrooms. As part of the Celtic Manor Resort portfolio, the new hotel will be a partnership between the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) and Rightacres.
Cardiff, the UK’s premier business location after London
Central Cardiff’s Enterprise Zone designation is testament to the ambition of confirming Cardiff as the UK’s premier business location after London. Cardiff’s ambition and understanding its role in the financial, professional, services and tech industries has meant that the city has progressed in the last 10 years through investment and coordination of infrastructure and development.
With Wales’ reputation for innovation excellence and invention, our ambition is to attract an ever-increasing number of sector related conferences and meetings. This is where the Principality Stadium takes credit; not only is the venue known for its vibrant crowds of yellow daffodils and tense play offs in international sports, but with its large capacity and diverse meetings spaces, The Principality Stadium opens its doors to associations and event planners looking to bring their events to Cardiff.
The Vale Resort and Hensol Castle

With the training pitches being on the grounds of the resort and Hensol Castle, you may be lucky enough to see them training during a visit.
