IMPORTANT INFORMATION RELATING TO YOUR APPLICATION FOR LIVERPOOL TATTOO CONVENTION
The convention hosts approx 250 artists and occupies a number of large conference rooms within the Adelphi Hotel on the ground and lower ground floors of the building.
Rooms contain between 12 and 70 artists.
The building has some stunning architecture and interior design however it is quirky and we must layout the convention within these constraints.
The building isn’t a soulless event hanger and because of this a wonderful atmosphere comparable to no other tattoo show is created.
