AECC praised for 'first-class' service at major event

The Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) has been praised for its efforts in staging a "first-class" event.

Around 900 delegates attended the Press and Journal newspaper's Energy Ball, which featured entertainment from Strictly Come Dancing stars Anton Du Beke and Erin Boag, as well as Bee Gees tribute act Jive Talkin'.

Alan Scott, managing director of Aberdeen Journals, said: "It was a first-class night. Everyone I spoke to had a great time. AECC did a great job - the arena looked fabulous and the food was good."

On the night, the in-house catering staff of 20 chefs, 80 waiting staff and 60 bar staff produced and served almost 900 meals, the newspaper's report of the event said.

Brian Horsburgh, managing director of the AECC, said that the energy ball was a "major event" for the venue, adding that staff received lots of compliments about the food, planning and running of the ball.

Later this year, Glasgow's Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre will be gearing up for another major event for the country, when it hosts the Music of Black Origin awards.
