The SSE Hydro was completed on time and on budget on the 30th September 2013. One year on it is now one of the most recognized and successful live events arenas in the world and was named third busiest venue in the world by Pollstar.
There were a number of strategies employed by the venue team to ensure both the successful launch of the SSE Hydro and an immediate implementation of the high standards associated with the the other SECC venues.
The impact of the SSE Hydro were immediate and powerful, but also left a legacy for everyone at the SECC. Despite the challenge of the June fire, the delivery team for the venue was able to complete the venue on time and ready for the launch events at the end of September.
