Newport's Celtic Manor Resort has unveiled the images for its international convention centre.

The Wales International Convention Centre is set to create 150 extra jobs once it is complete.

It will have the capacity for about 4,000 people and is due to open in summer 2018.

It will be built over three floors on land next to junction 24 of the M4 and cover more than 20,000 sq m (215,278 sq ft).

The images were unveiled at The Meetings Show UK in London.

Newport City Council granted the project planning permission in earlier this month.

Celtic Manor Resort chief operating officer Ian Edwards said: "It will bring enormous economic benefits to the cities of Newport and Cardiff and the wider surrounding region."
