London Olympia Redevelopment

Fri 16 August 2019

Category: London

The transformation is set to begin in 2020 to renovate the iconic 133-year-old landmark into an arts, entertainment, events and creative business quarter.

A £1bn project to turn Olympia London into a world-leading cultural hub has been approved by planners. The project will create more than 3,000 new construction jobs over the next five years in addition to approximately 5,400 new jobs for the borough when it is completed.

Key features of the project include:

  • 1,500-seat theatre
  • A 1,000-seat performing arts venue
  • Two hotels
  • A four-screen cinema
  • 670,000 sq ft of creative office space, including new co-working space
  • Upgrades to the existing spaces to turn Olympia London into one of the world’s top exhibition and event centres
  • A 200,000 sq ft logistics centre

Whilst Olympia London has confirmed that the venue will remain open throughout the works, they are unable to accommodate an event the size and complexity of PETEX 2020. We look forward to seeing their new facilities, but in the meantime PETEX will be returning to the Business Design Centre in Islington, a favourite amongst many of our delegates and exhibitors for its accessibility and vibrant social scene. Careful and creative planning means that we have been able to deliver a floorplan with a larger square footage than PETEX 2018 at London Olympia. We look forward to see you there!
