The ICC Capital Lounge Rooms consists of six executive boardrooms with a private entrance, as well as a reception area for delegate catering and registration. They can accommodate between ten and 50 delegates. Features include balcony access, intelligent glass, an integrated PA system, digital signage and screens for streaming content. 

The investment for the new rooms came as a direct result of client demand for a high-end executive suite.

James Rees, executive director for ExCeL London, said: "In response to client feedback, we recognised that we needed a five-star facility for smaller events, including private briefings and senior level one-to-one meetings. The opening of our new ICC Capital Lounge provides the ideal high-end facility to complement our existing event space.

"Last year, 52% of new corporate contracts won at ExCeL represented a switch from a traditional hotel environment to a flexible venue format, such as our International Convention Centre. Our new ICC Capital Lounge Rooms will further enhance our offer, with initial bookings reflecting the demand for this type of facility. We’ve already seen a 40% increase in bookings of this type, in what will be our busiest ever year for conferences at ExCeL London."
