New venue selected for the 2015 London Book Fair

The upcoming London Book Fair, slated to take place mid-April, will be hosted at the West London venue Earls Court for the last time. Event operators Reed Exhibitions confirmed this week that the 2015 fair will take place at the nearby Olympia convention centre.

With the Earls Court property set to be demolished to make way for residential development, event organizers were forced to look for a new home for the fair. Earlier this year it was suggested that the event could be moved to its 2006 location, Excel, but past patrons complained that the Docklands neighbourhood was difficult to get to and lacked the range of dining options that exist around Earls Court. The new venue, however, is in the same vicinity as Earls Court.

The decision to relocate the fair to Olympia was based on extensive consultation with industry representatives in the U.K. and abroad. In a press release, London Book Fair director Jack Thomas says, “We have listened long and hard to those who participate in The London Book Fair and, while it is sad that Earls Court is unlikely to form part of the London exhibition venue mix, we fully appreciate the great affection the industry has for West London and believe that moving to Olympia is currently the right move for the publishing industry.”
