Telford International Centre has announced its latest investments as it continues to work towards a more sustainable future. Recent developments from the Midlands-based events venue include the replacement of all lighting in its 10,000 sq m of exhibition halls to LED lights, estimated to save over 70% in electricity. It has also installed new fast-charging (22kWh) electric vehicle charging points, which are open for anyone visiting the centre or staying at one of its on-site hotels.
