Note that there are three pillars in the middle of the foyer, one beside the foot of the Main Stairs, another outside the fourth set of doors to the Hall and the third between the first and second set of doors on the south side of the foyer.

The Cromdale Hall

There are four sets of double doors on the south side, of which only the middle two are normally used.

This is a large exhibition space under which cables can be run, so there may be some unevenness in the floor.

The walls ar covered by sound deadening curtains. This is a large square room 1200 SQ M with four pillars in the middle and pillars around the sides.

The West Fire Exit leads onto the Western Approach Road there's another one near the far (northwest) corner and another from the northeast corner. Other fire exits are through the Cromdale Foyer.

Note that delegates would be guided around this space as necessary.
