We can accommodate up to 50 exhibition stands in our dedicated Conference Centre, located on the 2nd floor of the Grade II listed Great Western Warehouse.

Exhibitions are one of the most successful marketing tools available and are proven to deliver significant ROI. The main advantage of organising an exhibition compared with other instruments of marketing and advertising lies in the fact that it gives organisers, exhibitors and customers the chance to meet face-to-face.

We all know the power of personalised communications and there can be no better personalisation than listening and speaking to your customers without any barriers.

Our conference centre is comprised of six spaces including the Garratt Suite, Dalton Suite, Joule Suite, Lovell Suite and Whitworth Suite. The suites are named after prominent British scientists and engineers, whose accomplishments are celebrated around the museum. They are complemented by a large foyer that is ideal for registration, exhibitions and catering.

Our venue hire team will take care of every detail; from choosing your unique space to catering and entertainment.
