Olympia London has reported the largest number of bookings for its Olympia West and Central, since its £30m investment.
The venue has also claimed a record number of new shows, with six having taken place since the beginning of the year to 31 March 2015.
Nick Graham, head of sales at Olympia, said: “Olympia is thriving. These spaces are ideally suited to young shows with the potential to grow within Olympia’s seven spaces.”
“We’re also encouraged by the quality of new shows coming through our doors and by new co-locations, such as Retail Design Expo and Craft. We are enjoying working creatively and flexibly with our organisers to achieve, in some cases, some very rapid expansions for new shows.”
The inaugural BBC Good Food Eat Well Show attractedmore than 10,000 visitors to the venue in February, while organiser of the Dubai Property Show, Sumansa Exhibitions, looks forward to the upcoming Indian Property Show in April.
Sunil Jaiswal, Sumansa Exhibitions president said: “The first edition of the Dubai Property show was a success and we were very happy with the overall experience and footfall. We chose Olympia London because it is centrally located and easily accessible having its own dedicated rail station.”
Luke Perry, event director for PUB15 at SME London said he was elated with the response to the show in its first year at Olympia (pictured). “Olympia West was ideal for PUB15, it’s modern, has natural daylight and it was accessible for our delegates coming from pubs all over the UK into London. We look forward to developing and improving our offering at the same venue ready for 2016.”
The venue also saw the return of Media 10’s Ideal Home Show earlier this month, where it first began 107 years ago.
