It’s one of London’s biggest events venues, offering 100,000 sqm of flexible space, an auditorium for up to 6,500 delegates, and 79 individual meeting rooms. This year the judges agreed that after a successful 2015, ExCeL was a worthy winner of the Best UK Conference Venue award. Last year the venue successfully defined its ambition to be the ‘Home of World Leading Events’, working with a wide range of clients, including LinkedIn, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Hewlett Packard Enterprises and the European Society of Cardiology. These events, amongst others, contributed £2.9 billion to the city’s economic impact and supported 31,000 jobs.
The venue was also commended for its focus on investment, including the introduction of a £1.5m meeting and training facility. ExCeL also invested in technology upgrades to improve its wi-fi infrastructure, delegate catering and commercial partnerships, such as the agreement with CityJet to provide competitive pricing for delegates arriving at London City airport.
