The Exhibition Centre is a versatile canvas for designing a tailor-made programme, with sufficient space for separate breakout, seminar, sponsor zones and hospitality areas. It can be fully branded throughout and with the addition of shell scheme stands and carpet tiling, it is a flexible venue for both consumer and trade shows.
