The announcement is a critical step in the redevelopment of Olympia London and will see ASM Global take management responsibility for the exhibitions and events business. The move expands ASM’s footprint in Europe with an iconic London venue and brings global knowledge-sharing to expand Olympia London’s international market reach.

Olympia’s redevelopment, which will be completed in 2024, includes a 4,400-capacity live-music venue; a 1,575-seat performing arts theatre; a school for the creative arts; 100,000 sq. ft of restaurants, bars and eateries; two globally renowned hotels; 550,000 sq. ft. of offices; and 2.5 acres of new public space.

Our commitment to guest and partner satisfaction aligns with the reputation of Olympia London, and we look forward to continuing to serve existing and new clients’ event schedules at Olympia London and developing the program with other signature events.”
