Every year, the Olympic Park welcomes a number of exhibitions and trade shows, with accessibility being one of the site’s key attractions. The Park can be easily accessed by visitors and exhibiters alike thanks to 2 nearby Metro stations and parking for over 4,000 vehicles. The site can also accommodate heavy equipment, and provides easy access for vehicles to ensure a set up and disassembly that’s quick, simple, and cost-efficient, as the use of unloading docks is not required. Interesting to note, the Stadium playing field is 55 metres high and has no weight limitations. The Stadium also offers many spaces and corridors that are ideal for a wide variety of activities: booths, conferences, assembly areas, VIP sections, lounges, technical rooms, and reception halls. The Esplanade is a large outdoor area that’s ideal for a wide range of exhibitions and trade shows, and the site’s various levels allow for different set ups. The area is designed for fluid circulation and enables controlled access for paid activities or events with a restricted number of participants.
