Ultimate Experience, the London seasonal venue and event specialist, will open the inaugural season of events at Exhibition, the new West London venue opening for winter 2019.
The events and venue management business, which is part of CH&CO, will be the first company to host events at Exhibition from this November.
Formerly the Dimco building, a Grade II-listed Victorian structure originally built as a London Underground power station and later used as a bus depot, Exhibition is a purpose-built event destination offering over 3,000sqm of event space over two levels.
With exclusive use for six weeks, clients of Ultimate Experience will be the first to step foot into the impressive venue when the heritage building opens its doors to the public for the first time in its history following its restoration. Ultimate Experience’s creativity and expertise will produce and enhance the impressive space ready for a season of award ceremonies, charity fundraisers, brand events, Christmas parties and private receptions.
Ultimate Experience will be joined by its sister companies, Create Food by CH&CO, who will deliver exceptional catering and service for the events across the busy season,and Full Circle, who will provide full production and furniture as well as clients entertainment requirements.
Bradley Thompson, Managing Director of Broadwick Live & Venues, said, “Exhibition represents an important moment in the evolution of Westfield London, creating a unique entertainment hub and enhancing the area’s cultural kudos.
'Ultimate Experience provides amazing experiences for some of the UK's most high-profile brands and corporate clients and we are extremely happy to partner with them on the first run of events in the venue.”
Carly Mitchell, Managing Director of Ultimate Experience, said, “To be the very first events business to work in Exhibition is a fantastic and exciting opportunity. We’ve been looking for a new venue for a few years and nothing we considered quite fitted our requirements.
'We know this is the right time to launch Exhibition to our clients and we believe this flexible and inspiring space is the perfect addition to our portfolio of event venues.”
Ultimate Experience’s impressive venue portfolio gives clients access to some of London’s most in demand venue spaces across two busy events seasons (summer and winter), including City Central at the HAC, The Pavilion at the Tower of London, Old Billingsgate, and now Exhibition.
