The West Hall has been transformed into a two-storey, 90,000 square feet exhibition facility by adding a floor and creating links to the Grand Hall and Olympia Two behind the restored façade.
EC&O Venues managing director Nigel Nathan said: "Our vision for Olympia respects the fabric of this historic building whilst also making the internal space easier to access and more flexible for organisers to use. These enhancements protect our heritage and position the Olympia complex for the future."
Completion of the new West Hall comes as EC&O Venues concludes negotiations with Transport for London (TfL) to secure weekday tube services for over twenty shows between January and June 2012.
London Underground has also committed to improving station signage, in particular at Shepherd’s Bush and Earls Court, providing announcements on trains for travel to Olympia and providing a bespoke travel plan for people with disabilities wanting to visit events.
