London has a thriving art scene and a complex cultural history, with artists, designers and architects from all over the world flocking to the city for inspiration. But art shows aren’t the only type of exhibition held in the capital. Trade shows and conferences are also big business, with the city playing host to some of the world’s most important corporate and business events.

Top tips for planning an exhibition:
establish a budget early
create a detailed planning schedule
decide how to market and promote your event
book an expo venue with a central location (good public transport links and on-site parking are always key considerations)
check your venue’s overtime fees
determine your catering requirements (and find out whether your venue has an alcohol licence or can cater to special dietary requirements)
Exhibition centres are multi-purpose spaces and can be modified according to your needs. Such venues can accommodate a whole lot of different events, from weddings and art fairs to fashion parades and dog shows! Here are some great exhibition centres in London:
Alexandra Palace – they call themselves iconic for a reason. Views of London’s stunning skyline, spacious rooms, many acres of outdoor space and, to top it all off, stylish Victorian architecture. Ally Pally is the ultimate north London convention centre for large live music events as well as for meetings.
Old Billingsgate – this Grade II listed venue also boasts exceptional views, in this case, of the Thames and Tower Bridge. Its tall arches and blank canvas spaces have great potential for product launches and fashion shows.
America Square – this is a contemporary exhibition centre located in the City of London. It has a historical touch, as an original Roman wall runs through it! This unique feature will add a special feel to your corporate event or conference.
Congress Centre – if you’re looking for a high-tech convention hall, look no further. Congress Hall features sophisticated sound and visual systems and is located in the heart of London’s West End. It’s a truly impressive exhibition hall with an excellent central location.

I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
