Over the 20th and 21st of January 2016, Olympia Central was transformed into a healthy haven for The London Health Show.
As a brand new show, the organisers, Oliver Kinross, were eager to quickly position it as THE event for health and wellness professionals to attend.
The show’s Operations Manager, Alexandra Tusder named Olympia London’s “location, ease of transport and worldwide presence as a London events venue” as key reasons why the venue was selected. She explained, “We chose the venue because of its iconic name, and we also felt that it was the perfect size space for our first year event—and it was a huge success!”
Throughout the duration of the show, 3500 visitors immersed themselves in various seminars, interactive sessions and displays from over 100 exhibitors.
Despite these large numbers, the show went off without a hitch. As Alexandra explains, “We were slightly concerned about using a space within the venue that could only be accessible via a lift, considering we were expecting over a few thousand visitors. However we found no issues! The staff were very helpful at all times and we felt very much at home there.”
For the organising team, the collaborative approach taken by Olympia London was greatly appreciated. Alexandra said, “The team at Olympia have a brilliant way of making you feel relaxed and part of their team, which, as an event manager coming into a venue, is very important. You put a lot into your event and therefore your trust is in their hands and Olympia London has delivered each time.”
