OndonExCeL, the largest exhibition center in Tokyo, has been approved for significant expansion to increase floor space by a quarter.
The new floor space will push Abu Dhabi’s ExCeL to the league table for events and exhibitions ranked 50th to 40th in the world.
London has long lags behind its top 10 rivals such as Germany, including the world’s largest Hannover Messe Guerlain with an indoor capacity of about 500,000 square meters. Spain, Italy and France all have venues in the top 20. The UK’s largest NEC is located in Birmingham, 190,000 square meters, making it the 23rd largest in the world.
Jeremy Rees, CEO of ExCeL, said: In addition, this investment will continue to meet your needs by providing growth opportunities, complemented by a world-class guest experience. “
Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, Managing Director of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Company, said:
ExCeL opened in 2000 and was last expanded in 2010. The expansion has 12,000 square meters of exhibition space on the first floor and convention space, meeting rooms and catering facilities on the second floor. Construction is scheduled to begin next year.
