Exhibition facilities

Wow your delegates with an exhibition held at the CEME Conference Centre! Nestled in the heart of the Thames Gateway and purpose built to hold exhibitions, conferences and events, the CEME Conference Centre was designed with delegates in mind. Wide, open, well-lit spaces are complemented with natural daylight. Bold colour schemes and comfortable furniture ensure that everyone is inspired by your event.

CEME has a number of exhibition areas on site. Our POD circulation area is our largest open area and can accommodate exhibitions for up to 600 people. Not only is the space light-filled and modern – perfect for an exhibition area – but it is also very flexible and very affordable, it even includes our ‘state of the art’ POD Theatre.

We also have adjoining exhibition space on The Street where we can hold exhibitions and events from fashion shows with full shell schemes, to product launches, business Expos, wedding fayres and corporate receptions.

If you need separate space for presentations or product launches the POD Theatre will tick every box. As the most contemporary and exciting conference space in East London, the POD Theatre will impress all of your guests. If you need additional space, we have a wide range of meeting rooms on site perfect for a secondary exhibition hall, workshops, networking or private events throughout your exhibition.

Working with you, every step of the way, our award winning CEME events team is committed to making your exhibition a success. Right from your initial enquiry, up to the end of your event, our courteous and professional staff will be on hand to ensure the smooth running of your day. Whether it is from exhibition and room set up, to refreshments being served on time, our team take meticulous care to attend to your every detail. You also have peace of mind of knowing our on-site technicians are on hand to support your AV requirements.
