Venue

The Ericsson Exhibition Hall at the Wasps Arena, Coventry is one of the UK’s leading exhibition venues.

The modern facility offers a 6,000m2 pillarless exhibition hall as well as a range of conference rooms catering for hundreds of delegates – PrintWeekLive! will take over the entire venue, which will be dressed to the highest standard to ensure that for two days in March the venue will truly reflect the power of print.

The venue is easily accessible from all over the UK whether it be by car or public transport. By train it’s only 50 minutes from London or 15 minutes from Birmingham and via car it’s only half a mile from a main motorway hub. The site also features 2,000 on site car parking spaces, which will be free for visitors to PrintWeekLive!.

PrintWeekLive! visitors will also have free access to the venue’s wifi network.

As well as the Ericsson Exhibition Hall, the Wasps Arena site also features a Double Tree by Hilton hotel and a further 2,000 hotel rooms are only minutes away by car. The site also boasts a number of restaurants and bars, including one of the UK’s largest casino venues, Grosvenor Casino Coventry.

In short, the Wasps arena is the perfect venue for exhibitors and visitors alike, and a new home for the UK print industry.

The exhibition will be held on the following hours:
