The current design for the expansion includes additional exhibition space, a 1,100-seat theatre and multi-function space, meeting rooms, a new banquet hall, extra car parking and a hotel to provide additional accommodation in the precinct.

Contractors will be chosen in the coming months with construction expected to begin in the first half of 2016 and the expansion to be opened in 2018.
