Aspers, which will open its doors to business at noon on 1 December, will offer event planners another entertainment destination in London’s East End, and will include an event space.

The 6,038sqm casino will have an open-door policy to anyone aged over 18, and will feature slots, gaming tables, a poker room, casual dining restaurant, Sports Bar and Sky Bar with panoramic views over the Olympic stadium. It will open 24 hours a day, for 364 days of the year.

James Rees, Excel London’s director of conferences and events, said: "The opening of Aspers at Westfield is really good for us, as it provides our business visitors with another reason to stay close to our campus, which is at the very heart of London’s event district, and enjoy everything the east of London has to offer.""

Tracy Halliwell, London & Partners’ director of business tourism and major events, added: "Aspers Westfield Stratford City is a major addition to London’s business tourism proposition, and its opening will further strengthen London’s reputation as the best city for business."
