The new Farnborough International Venue and Events (FIVE) facility has been open for events since late 2007. This week it houses the BAE Systems Pavilion (Outdoor Exhibit 11, near the west end of chalet rows A-D and behind row K). Farnborough International created the venue in an effort to use the show site for business and social events outside the air show calendar.
According to Farnborough International, FIVE’s flexible design lends itself to quick reconfiguration for large events or much smaller gatherings. It can even provide supplementary car parking for the site, once opened.
