The home of pioneering spirit, Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre is located at the birthplace of British aviation and draws heavily on this association.
Looking out over a private airfield where the first powered flight once took place, and in easy reach of the UK’s aerospace, science and technology heartland, the venue is an exciting destination for organisations that have a focus on innovation and ingenuity.
From the jet engine, the designs for Concorde, high altitude space suits, night vision aids, carbon fibre, and even heads-up cockpit displays: it has all happened in Farnborough. We have taken this heritage and made it integral to our 20,000sqm venue so that events of all types can take inspiration from the world-class innovation that has shaped air travel.
With a 12,500sqm exhibition hall and nine additional conference spaces, Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre hosts events of all sizes; from small meetings through to major exhibitions.
Located just 35-minutes by train from central London, 10 minutes from the M3, and 30-minutes from Heathrow, travelling here is easy; and while we’re in close proximity to London and Southampton, we benefit from acres of outdoor space including parking for 3,000 cars.
As organisers of the Farnborough International Airshow, one of the world’s biggest and most complex trade events, we are one of the UK’s only venues to offer on-site and a collaborative approach to delivering events.
We believe in the power of face-to-face communication and bringing people together in one place, at one time. Looking ahead, the future means living and working with a new set of social practices and behaviours, and so we’re producing plans to help organisers create events that feel safe and comfortable, in line with government advice
