Forman's Fish Island 2012 Olympics

The Closest Venue ever to an Olympic Stadium

In addition to our existing Forman's Fish Island venue, we are creating
a new venue specially for the London 2012 Olympics.

The new riverside space adjacent to our current venue comprises 20,000 square metres, ideal for an 8,000 capacity experiential, hospitality and entertainment venue with a press and media centre and TV studios above. We are creating a fun campus for sponsors and clients, a nightclub, luxury yacht moorings and much more - a place where people really want to be and where you can keep your clients close. Forman's Fish Island will offer a high quality 360 degree space, a once-in-a-lifetime memorable experience in a high quality environment. Visitors will avoid London's crowds and congestion when 350,000 people leave the Olympic Park on the opposite side at Stratford.

We believe that great space, fine food, music and art is the ultimate sensory combination. We have already hosted events for LOCOG, ATOS Origin, Nike, Sir Robert McAlpine, Visa, EdF, Coke, Hockey 2014, The ODA, DEFRA, Lee Cooper, The Corporation of London, the Mayor of Beijing, Ogilvy, Accenture, West Ham United to name but a few.

Clients can rest assured everything will work well under Executive Chef Lloyd Hardwick who opened the Tate Modern restaurants to 30,000 daily visitors.

Tickets

Tickets


Tickets to events will need to purchased through official networks. All your guests can come to Forman's Fish Island where they can live, see and hear the experience of the Games. Guests can enter the Park from our site and return for additional hospitality and entertainment afterwards.
Regeneration

Regeneration


One of the main purposes of The Olympics is to regenerate East London. Being at Forman's Fish Island means that clients will be associated with a 106 year old East End family business that is part of the story. Guests will be making history being part of this regeneration. Mayor of London Boris Johnson described Forman's Fish Island as "the legacy in advance" when he came to open the building in 2009. Forman's reputation is based on quality, service and sustainability.
Media

Media


Formans has added to its team two professionals with huge experience of the sports and media industries. Simon Johnson, the former COO of Englands 2018 World Cup Bid and a recognised rights expert from The FA, the Premier League and ITV has teamed up with Brian Barwick, the former CEO of The FA and Head of Sports of both ITV and the BBC. They will help to build on the huge following and goodwill that we have here and will represent our facilities to the media.

London's Living  Room

This is how most people will be enjoying the Olympics around the world,
on a sofa or armchair watching a big screen – it is a fun take on the reality
of 2012 and would be a very memorable image of the London Olympics.
The "surreal thing".

The structure can be built well before July 2012 and used for experiential, media (TV studios and Press Suites) and hospitality in the run up to the Games. It could be easily established as an iconic landmark with brands associated to it. If it was a non sponsor
the branding would need to be taken from view two weeks before the start of the Games.

Beneath the stage area is 5500 sq metres of hospitality. There is 7,000 square metres
of space in the sofa itself. A large area for concerts, live events or interviews with the
sports stars. The screen can broadcast the action, be a giant twitter screen, or even a big computer games screen. This is an idea that you can make your own for 2012 and also
take it to sporting and live events all over the world post 2012.
