Exhibition venues is something that London does very well. It has become a hub for international expos of all varieties. The London 2012 Olympics, of course, has raised London events profile even further. Whether you're planning on holding an annual exhibition in West London (Earl's Court is a good place to start), in the City or out in The Docklands, there's an exhibition space available for hire.
Some of trade fair ready venues we've compiled in this selection on squaremeal.co.uk are in buildings you may not necessarily think of first. Race courses – one of a variety of different sports venues – for example, with their abundance of space – some have space for over 1,000 seated theatre-style – for display stands are a good bet. In the list there are large-scale music venues, which add character and a little theatre to your event.
With the advent of the Olympics, there has also been a few new venues for exhibitors to pitch up in. If you're keen to book a venue in a slightly more historical setting check out the listed building offering their space for exhibitions.
