Farnborough International Becomes Major Filming Location

Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre is fast-becoming an established location for major film, TV and photographic shoots.

A number of scenes in the newly-released blockbuster, Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw, starring Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson, were filmed at the venue with its 12,000sqm pillar-free hall easily able to accommodate high-octane action shots.

Located on a private and secure site, and in close proximity to major studios including Shepperton and Pinewood, the corporate event venue has become a proven option for location managers.

The Exhibition and Conference Centre is on the site of the legendary Farnborough International Airshow. It includes two separate venues: Hall 1 which opened in 2018 and - in addition to its 12,000sqm, ten meter high hall – has a number of other spaces of varying size; and Hall 5 which is entirely self-contained and includes a 3,150sqm clear span space.

Other major film shoots hosted in recent months include Jurassic World; TV dramas and music videos; photo shoots, adverts, and even singer Jessie J used the spaces for rehearsal ahead of her tour.

Michael Watton, Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre Venue Director, says: “Working with the film and photographic industries has proven an unexpected but very welcome diversification of our business.

“We’re lucky to have a serious amount of space – a trade exhibition required a helicopter as part of a display! Recently, a 16-tonne flatbed was used to undertake a handbrake turn as part of a stunt, which was an impressive and very different use of the space.”

“We designed both Halls to host corporate events of all size including major exhibitions. It’s been extraordinary seeing a space that is usually filled with exhibition stands appearing in the background of scenes from blockbusters films.”

The venue is located on a large but relatively empty site which has power and water facilities to accommodate a unit base. Ancillary areas include access to toilets, service road, kitchens and exterior car parks. Proximity to other studios reduces accommodation costs and for productions such as Hobbs & Shaw, the fully secure and private site is a huge attraction.

The Farnborough International Airshow is one of the world’s biggest biennial trade shows with the next one taking place in July 2020.

Regarded as the home of pioneering spirit, Farnborough is legendary for being the birthplace of aviation, it is where the first ever powered flight took place in 1908. Since then, it has become synonymous with innovation; from the jet engine, the designs for Concorde, high altitude space suits, night vision aids, carbon fiber, even head-up cockpit displays; it has all happened in Farnborough, and now it is gaining a reputation as a major filming location.

Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre: UK’s Leading Destination for Hosting Global Events

In little over 18-months, the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre has quickly established itself as one of the UK’s leading venues for hosting global events.

Situated at the heart of the UK’s affluent sci:tech corridor, the British equivalent of Silicon Valley, the £30million venue is shaped around Farnborough’s role as the birthplace of aviation and is synonymous with pioneering triumphs for over a century.

Served by strong national and international travel links, with Europe’s leading business airport Tag Farnborough on its doorstep, the venue is highly accessible. A direct train link into Central London’s Waterloo Rail Station takes just 30-minutes.

The heritage of the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre is visible from throughout the building, with views to the exact location where Iowa-born aviation pioneer, Samuel Cody, completed the first ever powered flight in the UK. Farnborough is also where Sir Frank Whittle tested his revolutionary jet engine in 1941, and of course, is home to the world-famous Farnborough International Airshow.

Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre Venue Director, Michael Watton, is thrilled with how the venue has taken off since opening in 2018: “We’re in an incredibly strong position 18-months into opening. The venue has quickly established itself as a leading location which has close proximity to strategically important industries. It has been incredible to welcome a diverse range of events to the venue since opening. We’re now beginning to see multi-show signings which really underlines the importance of our approach to creating long-standing working relationships with clients, something that we know all industry professionals really value”.

Since opening its doors, the venue has welcomed 220,400 visitors and played host to a variety of events, exhibitions, and film shoots. It is fast-becoming an established location for major film, TV and photographic shoots and has become the proven filming destination for location managers. The site is secure and private, with close proximity to other major filming studios in the UK.

One notable film shot at the venue is Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, which had several major scenes shot in the main exhibition hall. For Michael, this unexpected diversification of the business is hugely welcome: “The Hall was designed to host events of all sizes, including major exhibitions. It’s been fascinating to see the space transformed into film sets which feature on the big screen”.

Next year is another big year for the venue. July 2020 will see the aerospace world descend on Farnborough for the return of the biennial Airshow, with the venue playing an integral part to the show. There is also an exciting list of upcoming events set to see bookings through to 2021 which reaffirms the growth and success it has seen in such a short-period.
