A message from our CEO

Welcome to our venue.

The Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre team know that it is vitally important each event we stage must succeed for everyone involved, from the organiser through to the attendee. We know this  because our venue has been developed out of the experience we have gained through decades of delivering one of the world’s biggest and most successful Airshows and we care about your experience.

We set out to create an environment that enables business to thrive, using our location as the home of pioneering spirit to engage and inspire. Much of the ingenuity that has shaped modern-day aerospace took place in buildings that can still be seen from the venue; from the jet engine, the designs for Concorde, even space suits, it has all happened in Farnborough and we aim to help you replicate this Pioneering Spirit.

As one of the only venues in the UK with on-site organiser expertise, we are here to support all aspects of your event and we have carefully selected a range of on-site suppliers meaning you get best-in-class service across everything from catering to AV. It's important for us that you feel at home here with a team whose success is based entirely on yours – we look forward to exceeding your expectations!
