Olympia Exhibition Centre dates back to 1886 as and as a result has some amazing internal architecture in the Grand Hall and National Hall that takes that we are in awe of each time we visit. It also happens to be London's first multi-storey car park!
Situated to the west of London, it is in an excellent location in terms of transport links. With it's own designated tube station, and its close proximity to London Heathrow, it is not too far from Knightsbridge and an abundance of restaurants for some evening R&R.
Olympia now consists of 5 halls: Olympia Grand, Olympia National, Olympia Central, Olympia West and Olympia Conference Centre. They are each unique in their own ways and with that present their own considerations when working on your exhibition stand design. For example, the Grand and National Halls are ideal for large high structures in the middle ground floor sections, however the Victorian balconies around their perimeter can present height restrictions for exhibition stands position beneath them. The balconies themselves provide a wonderful view of the exhibition in the main hall, and if you are lucky enough to be positioned next to the barriers, you will have an eye on everything that is happening during the exhibition.
Old meets new when you enter the newly completed Olympia West Hall, with all the facilities you would expect and less considerations when designing your stand. This floor plan below will help you get your bearings:
