As the face of Excel London, its managing director (conference and events), Cotton is a long established and respected industry figure. 2007 was another strong year for Cotton, with Excel exerting its dominance in the large venue market, as underlined by a host of business wins particularly in the association sector. Excel also bolstered its green credentials last year, with Cotton championing initiatives including the introduction of an environmental penalty scheme to discourage clients from using non-recyclable materials at the venue. The venue capped off a winning year by netting three of the top accolades at the Eventia UK Awards 2007.
