London Olympia 2
Central London is the ideal location for the event due to its very strong potential exhibitor and visitor base within the immediate catchment area and its unrivalled accessibility.
Olympia has excellent facilities with easy access from Heathrow and Gatwick, all major railway stations and all major motorway routes, as well as its own dedicated underground and British Rail station.
The official hotel booking partner for Learning Technologies 2014 and Learning and Skills 2014 is The Solutions Company and we have negotiated special event rates for a range of hotels in the vicinity.
Transport for London (TfL) have reduced the weekday tube service of the District Line to Kensington (Olympia) Station. For more information.
Olympia has its own dedicated railway station: Olympia - Kensington (Olympia). Turn left out of the exit of the station onto Olympia Way and follow signs for Olympia Grand Hall, Olympia National Hall, Olympia Two and Olympia Conference Centre.
