The 11,000sqm structure will first be used for UBM's Decorex International 2009 from 27-30 Setember and will incorporate exhibition halls, restaurants, café, kitchens and reception areas to cater for up to 10,000 visitors.
Once Decorex closes, the halls will remain on site to house the Art London Fair, which runs from 8-12 October.
"De Boer's high-quality structures allow us the flexibility to provide all the facilities that you would normally associate with a permanent venue," said UBM's events and business developments director Cathy Oates.
"Hosting back-to-back events on the location in the same structures is an innovative way for organisations to keep down their overheads in these difficult economic times whilst at the same time maintaining the highest quality for their exhibitors and visitors," said De Boer's sales director John Cochrane.
