New £333m Aberdeen exhibition centre to open in early 2019
The new AECC at Bucksburn was originally expected to be completed in late 2018.
The new Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre is now due to be completed in spring 2019.
The £333m AECC in Bucksburn was originally expected to be completed in late 2018 but the project was delayed.
Construction is scheduled to begin in July after Aberdeen City Council buys the land.
The new exhibition centre will replace the existing AECC at Bridge of Don, which is set to become a recycling facility.
Developers say it will bring an extra 31,000 business tourists to the area each year, who they claim will contribute £11m to the economy.
Aberdeen City Council spends around £1.3m subsidising the current AECC every year but says the new development will cost it just £100,000 annually.
