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 £30 million purpose-built centre brings valuable space to organisations looking for a modern location and world-class event support.

Located at the home of the Farnborough International Airshow, the new centre builds on Farnborough’s reputation as a major business hub. Just 35 minutes by train from central London and easily accessible from the M3 and Heathrow Airport, it offers a highly flexible space for events of all size.

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.”

He continued: “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.
