The London Summit on stability, growth and jobs is now underway at Excel London. Bringing together leaders of the world's advanced and emerging economies, including the G20, and representatives of international financial institutions, the summit will highlight Excel London's status as a premier meetings venue.

Commenting on the London summit, Excel London managing director David Pegler said: "We have been steadily attracting an increasing number of international and high-profile clients to our venue, many of which have rated events at Excel as their most successful events with the highest delegate and visitor numbers. The selection of Excel London as the venue for the London Summit is testament to our international standing as a premier meeting and events destination."

Pegler added: "This validates our £160m investment in expanding our venue exhibition hall capacity and building the London International Convention Centre at Excel."

In spring 2010, Excel will open a 5,000-seat auditorium, a banqueting hall for 3,000 and 17 meeting rooms for up to 2,000 delegates.
