Olympia London wants to ensure that every visitor has a safe and enjoyable time at the venue. To facilitate this, they have highly-trained teams in place as well as certain measures designed to provide comfort and reassurance for all.

Every visitor who comes to Olympia will have their bags searched. We therefore ask you to consider keeping bags and possessions to a minimum. Please also consider the size of your bag – we recommend just one small bag or handbag – to minimise the time it takes to search and gain access to the event. When planning your arrival to the venue, we suggest you allow some extra time for security checks.
