Budget hotel chain Travelodge is ramping up its expansion programme with plans to invest £100m in 10 new hotels near UK conference centres.
The firm is actively looking at sites from Edinburgh to Bournemouth, including three potential venues in London.
Travelodge said that during the last three years it has experienced year on year strong growth from business customers who are also requesting more hotels close to the UK's popular event and conference centres.
· ACC Liverpool & Echo Arena (Liverpool)
· Alexandra Palace (London)
· Bournemouth International Centre
· Brighton Centre
· Edinburgh International Conference Centre
· Manchester Central Convention Complex
· Olympia (London)
· Queen Elizabeth Centre (London)
· Ricoh Arena & Coventry Conference Centre (Coventry)

Paul Harvey, Travelodge Managing Director - Property announced the plan as the budget hotel chain opened its 567th hotel by Telford International Centre.
It now operates hotels near the top 20 largest conference and event centres and plans more to meet growing demand.
Harvey said: "In response to the growing events market, we are actively searching to extend our network with a further 10 hotels close to UK popular conference and events centres.
"This expansion will offer more choice and greater value to delegates and eventgoers, whilst supporting the local economy. Collectively it represents an investment of £100m."
