The new £30m facility at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre is now open.
At 20,000sqm, and able to accommodate up to 10,000 guests, the purpose-built centre represents a significant new exhibition space offering for organisers. Located at the home of the Farnborough International Airshow, the new centre builds on Farnborough’s reputation as a major business hub.
Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International commented: “Farnborough International brings decades of experience in delivering complex events on a world stage to the running of this Exhibition and Conference Centre.
“We look forward to seeing the space come alive and working in partnership with our customers to plan and create successful events, with all aspects – from the catering, through to the technological capabilities – underpinned by our commitment to precision.”
The new exhibition and conference centre joins a portfolio of existing venues on the site and already has a number of events confirmed including: Screwfix Live, Merchandise World and Kidz to Adultz South. It will be at the heart of July’s Airshow – a biennial event which in 2016 saw $124bn worth of deals announced.
