Ricoh Arena Expands Exhibition Space

Work to expand exhibition space at the Ricoh Arena is now complete.

A new link has been created between the main 6,000 sqm Jaguar Exhibition Hall down to Hall Three, giving organisers and visitors easy access to an additional 1,500 sqm of exhibition space.

Midlands construction firm Ideal Group were appointed to carry out the work which began towards the end of June and which was completed earlier this month.

Andy Gibb, managing director at the Ricoh Arena, said: “While this may seem a small modification to the venue, we think access to more space will make a big difference to organisers whose events are growing every year.

“Organisers love the fact they can transform the current event space into what they want with very little restriction, so combining this liberal approach with even more event space in a central UK location makes the Ricoh Arena an unrivalled destination for events and exhibitions.

“The number of exhibitions and events hosted at the Ricoh Arena over the past year has really shown the true flexibility that the venue has to offer.

“We’re also looking to attract new events and exhibitions to help build on this strong performance, and linking these two spaces within the venue will help us to achieve that.”

Barry Butterworth, development manager at the Ricoh Arena, worked alongside Ideal Group to oversee the project.

He added: “Since the venue opened 11 years ago, Hall Three hasn’t been directly accessible from the Jaguar Exhibition Hall, but now this is changing it will make a big difference to what we can offer event organisers.

“Ease of access between the two spaces means that Hall Three could be used for more stands, for conferences or seminars or feature areas.”
