Founded in 1886, Olympia is the oldest expo centre in Europe. It’s located in West London, in a close proximity to major transport hubs and the central part of the city. The perfected infrastructure, combined with more than a century of experience in organising events for industries of any nature, makes the Olympia a desired and convenient venue for exhibitions and conferences.
The fair centre is connected to the well-established London inner transport system via designated bus, train and underground stations. It can be accessed by four different international airports. Additionally, 123,000 hotel rooms are available in London and the Greater London area. In 2013 a significant modernisation was introduced along with a further expansion of the 45,000 sq. metre area after a large-scale renovation.
The portfolio of the venue includes many art, music and hobby related events, including one of the biggest watches, clocks and jewellery exhibition in UK - Top Drawer.
