Farnborough International launches events venue

The new facility at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre is open for business.

At 20,000sqm, and able to accommodate up to 10,000 guests, this £30m purpose-built centre brings new, modern event space to market for organisers.

Located at the home of the Farnborough International Airshow, the new centre is accessible from the M3 and Heathrow Airport. 

Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International comments: “Farnborough International brings decades of experience in delivering complex events on a world stage to the running of this Exhibition and Conference Centre.”

Rogers adds: “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 US$124bn worth of deals announced.
