Printworks owners announce new venue ‘Exhibition’
Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield has announced a partnership with Broadwick Venues to create a major new venue and events space – Exhibition London – at Westfield London, Europe’s largest shopping destination.
Work on the new 3000 capacity venue will start in February with a targeted opening at the end of 2019, Exhibition – named after its proximity to the site of the Franco British Exhibition of 1908 – will repurpose the Grade II listed Dimco East building, a striking Victorian structure completed in 1899 and originally built as an electricity generating station for the London Underground.
Exhibition will host high-profile live music events, brand experiences, product launches, exhibitions, conferences, award ceremonies and community events.
Bradley Thompson, MD of Broadwick Live & Venues, says: “Exhibition represents an important moment in the evolution of Westfield London, creating a unique entertainment hub and enhancing the area’s cultural kudos. It will attract and serve not only the local community, but the ever-increasing number of people who rightly view White City as one of the most exciting growth places in the capital. The location is perfect and the building itself is incredible. We are committed to respecting its past and investing in its future; offering fantastic, contemporary experiences against a stunning Victorian backdrop.”
