The Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) is one of the leading venues for conferences, exhibitions, entertainment and events in Southern England. Owned and managed by Bournemouth Borough Council, the BIC operates alongside its sister venue, The Pavilion Theatre and Ballroom to provide the event organiser and leisure visitor with some of the best facilities on England's south coast. The BIC was best known for its swimming pool with wave machine but this was closed in 2004 to make way for a new conference hall. The Solent Hall was put in its place and this holds 2,500 people for standing music concerts. The main Windsor Hall has a concert capacity of 8,000 (800 seated and 7,200 standing) and is one of the bigger indoor music venues in the UK. The BIC is often included in the UK tours of famous artists such as Oasis, Status Quo, The Flaming Lips, Westlife, McFLY, Girls Aloud, Heaven and Hell, Kelly Clarkson, Jethro Tull, Sugababes, Alice Cooper, Rihanna, Boyz II Men, Razorlight, Avril Lavigne, Deep Purple, Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs Arctic Monkeys, Keane, David Essex, Jools Holland, Stereophonics, Mighty Boosh Basement Jaxx, French & Saunders, as well as Muse.

Situated in the heart of Bournemouth with public transport links close by, the Bournemouth International Centre hosts a variety of events all year. The venue can be seen as an arena due to its main hall capacity, and usually played at when artists are on arena tours.
