ExCeL London to open new meetings facility

Docklands conference centre ExCeL London has announced it will open a new waterfront meeting facility in January next year.

The CentrEd at ExCeL is a both a meeting and training facility, designed to provide a flexible solution for event planners’ requirements. Providing 29 rooms, the largest of which can hold 400 delegates, the venue also offers panoramic views of London. In addition to built-in A/V services in each room and free wi-fi, the meeting rooms have dockside balcony access.

James Rees, executive director at ExCeL London, said the venue’s location would play a key part in its success. "We will be able to provide delegates with a one-of-a-kind space within London. One that’s easily accessible and conducive to learning, with access to green spaces and fresh air, alongside the tranquil, waterside setting of Royal Victoria Dock. We are very excited about the launch of CentrEd at ExCeL, which we believe will provide all the right ingredients to deliver a complete meeting experience."
