ASM Global Europe, a leader in venue management, has announced plans to open four state-of-the-art venues across the UK (in London, Newcastle Gateshead, Derby and Southport) by 2027, further solidifying its position as one of the top venue operators.

The new venues, which will be opened between Spring 2025 and Spring 2027 will provide spaces for a wide range of events including exhibitions, congresses, conferences, hospitality and meetings.  In addition, they will offer significant new entertainment and consumer event spaces for thousands of live event attendees.

The openings, which include Olympia, London and The Sage ICC on the Newcastle Gateshead quayside, will confirm ASM Global Europe as one of the world’s leading event space providers, with 15 venues ranging from Aberdeen, Scotland to London, England.  ASM Global Europe has extensive knowledge and expertise delivering best in class events and experience for both consumers and commercial clients, which includes corporates, association, not-for profit and charity sectors.

The four venues are: 

Anticipated opening 2025 – Becketwell Performance Venue, Derby is a £45 million venue set to significantly add to the city’s cultural and events offering.  The venue has 1,000 sqm of exhibition space, a 2,100 theatre style auditorium, 600 banqueting capacity and 2,500 bedrooms within walking distance, whilst being just 15 minutes from an international airport.

Anticipated opening 2026 – Olympia London will become a destination for art, culture, entertainment, education and events through a £1.3 billion regeneration project.

Opening Spring 2026 – the new Olympia Conference Centre will sit alongside the venue’s world-famous exhibition spaces in the heart of London. By this time, Olympia will have already launched as a destination for art, culture, entertainment, education and events through a £1.3 billion regeneration project which will boast 2 internationally renowned hotels, many bars and restaurants as well as 2.5 acres of new public space. The new conference facilities will include a large auditorium, 14 meeting rooms, 2,000m² of flexible space and a private restaurant and bar.
