Transformation over time

The Business Design Centre has a vast and varied history encompassing everything from livestock to parcel delivery. The building was opened in 1862 and its primary purpose was to host agriculture and livestock events. Its original location was down to its proximity to the great livestock market, Smithfield.

Eventually, the building began outgrowing its location and it was time to move. The new location had to be accessible from Smithfield to make it easy to transport the livestock.

By 1930, not only had the Business Design Centre moved to Islington but they had added three additional halls. The site was now almost five acres.

In 1943, a bomb destroyed the local post office. The Business Design Centre became home to the parcel departments and customs. This led to the neglect of the venue until it eventually fell empty in 1970.

Over the last fifty years, the venue has been bought and redeveloped by new owners who continue to achieve milestones and host amazing events at the Business Design Centre.
