URW unveils Westfield London events space in former power station
Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and Broadwick Venues have unveiled plans for Exhibition, a new 3,000-capacity entertainment and events venue at Westfield London, due to open at the end of 2019. The joint venture will convert the historic Dimco Building into a new multi-function venue.
Spanning two floors, the 34,000-sq ft events and hospitality venue will reach a total standing capacity of 3,000 in multiple rooms, formats and configurations as well as a number of adaptable relaxation areas and onsite food and drinks vendors.
The Dimco Building is part of Westfield London’s £600m expansion, which opened last year as part of URW’s strategy of widening the offer to include not only fashion but food, entertainment, events and experiences.
Michel Dessolain, COO Europe for Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, said: “Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield creates unique and innovative destinations globally where our customers can shop, dine, be entertained and connect. Our partnership with Broadwick Venues, one of the biggest players in the events industry in the UK, and through the support of London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, will deliver an amazing new entertainment experience and will be a leading new events venue in London.”
