The power of the right exhibition venue
The venue selection for an exhibition is critical. From a basic logistical point of view, the chosen exhibition venue needs to be easily reachable by car, rail and air. On-site, it needs easy access for exhibitors to deliver their stands, with good ceiling height and car parking. It needs space in abundance, multiple rooms to attach a conference or educational programme, catering for delegates, and entertainment pre- and post-show.
We take the comfort of your guests seriously, so you can rest assured that each of our venues follows essential Covid-19 safety measures.
Exhibition venues with a twist
The venue continues to be integral in the creation of great experiences. At Lime Venue Portfolio, we believe strongly that an impressive venue sets the tone and creates anticipation ahead of an event, and this is no different when it comes to exhibitions.
We’re fortunate to have some of the very best exhibition spaces in the world within our portfolio. Magnificent purpose-built venues such as ExCeL London, the SEC and Olympia London allow a space-only environment, a blank canvas for the creative organiser to fill. But we also have more unusual venues that have quickly become a major feature in the UK exhibition landscape.
The unusual nature of the exhibition venue is particularly important. Unique venues carry their own history and heritage, iconic brands and reputations, and this can provide marketing, messaging and inspiration for the organiser as well as the guest. Arrival at The O2 is dramatic and when guests see their business event in places like Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Twickenham Stadium or Sandown Park, they'll be more likely to attend.
Unusual exhibition space hire works for major events, but also for smaller, boutique shows as well. Here the venue can work in partnership with the organiser to help the exhibition become established and then to expand. The space is versatile and allows a steady growth, tracking its performance and its potential, giving it the room to grow into.
Many unique venues carry huge marketing reach as well, not least for consumer shows, where their own marketing support and know-how can work in perfect partnership with the organiser’s activity.
Smaller exhibitions don’t always have the budget to spend on an expensive shell scheme, setup and breakdown costs. Working with a unique venue gives them a ready-made, and ready-dressed space that allows the organiser to again focus on the content.
