Westfield London has announced its plans to open a new venue and events space, offering customers more of an experience alongside their shopping.
The 34,000sq ft venue will be called Exhibition and will be built within the premises of Westfield London shopping centre in west London.
Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield has partnered with Broadwick Venues, which operates venues such as Printworks, to repurpose the grade II listed Dimco East Building.
The building sits on a site that is currently being developed as part of Westfield London’s £600 million expansion.
Exhibition will have two floors and a total standing capacity of 3000, as well as “multiple rooms, formats and configurations as well as a number of adaptable relaxation areas”.
“Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield creates unique and innovative destinations globally where our customers can shop, dine, be entertained and connect,” chief operating officer Michel Dessolain said.
“Our partnership with Broadwick Venues, one of the biggest players in the events industry in the UK, and through the support of London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, will deliver an amazing new entertainment experience and will be a leading new events venue in London.”
