London's Olympia sees 65% business boost in 2015

The Olympia London Conference Centre has increased its year-on-year business by 65% in 2015.

Several events have contributed to the boost, including The International European Middle Eastern and African Society for Biopreservation and Biobanking (ESBB) Conference, which took place from 29 September to 2 October, and the Ground Engineering Basements and Underground Structures Conference, which took place this month. 

"Olympia London is continuing to welcome both domestic and international business from new and emerging markets and we’re delighted to see so many events choosing our versatile space to showcase their products and services," said Gillian Kiamil, Olympia London venue director. "The conference centre has been recently refreshed and we’re delighted to see it go from strength to strength."

The venue is set to welcome more new events in the coming months, including Packaging News Live and Management in Practice.
