Year history as one of the world’s leading exhibition, entertainment and cultural centres

Olympia London is the only major exhibition centre in Central London and has a tremendous 130-year history as one of the world’s leading exhibition, entertainment and cultural centres.

During the last 20 years, Olympia London had been largely a non-core corporate holding within a larger corporate asset base. It was periodically traded to multiple different ownerships, each without a significant focused investment strategy.
