We also reported in our October Newsletter that new owners had taken over the Olympia Exhibition site. We have now had two consultations on the exciting proposals for this massive site.
The new owners are a German based company YOO, and they have appointed Thomas Heatherwick Studios and SPPARC architecture as their principal architects/designers. Their approach seems to be very positive. The team are anxious to retain all the existing main exhibition venues including the Grand and National Halls. Now that Earl’s Court no longer exists as a venue, Olympia is all the more important and the exhibition market seems buoyant.
