The Language Show will return to Olympia’s National Hall for its 23rd edition in 2011 to accommodate higher expected attendance.According to organiser Upper Street Events, this year’s show attracted 10,548 visitors - an increase of 17 per cent. Upper Street puts the increase down to changes of venue and dates. The show moved from Olympia 2 to Brompton Hall at Earls Court, allowing exhibitors and features to sit on the same level. The dates were brought forward by two weeks as well to increase appeal to teachers.“The move to the National Hall shows our intent and commitment to build on the success of this year and growing the show for the future,” said Upper Street commercial director Dan Holmes.Last month, Upper Street announced it was moving its Cycle Show from Earls Court to Birmingham’s NEC.
