I like Excel as an exhibition venue, easy to get to, good modern exhibition space, the infrastructure inside needs an upgrade, the food offering is poor, slow service and overpriced, why do they charge premium prices

Came here for a conference. Struck by how large it is. Our conference was in a huge part of the centre yet only took up one of their ‘sections’. A vast array of coffee shops and restaurants. The DLR stops outside and it is right...More

Went here for exhibition, it is a very big building, catering services were well equipped, although queuing was always necessary.

Excel is a good place for fair, each year I’m joining WTM. Best option is flying in to LCY and use a hotel at the area or close to Thames. Using the ferry is great in the morning, very comfortable.

Hi, Get on the Jubilee Line and change onto a Beckton-bound DLR train - Get off at Custom House for ExCeL (for the west entrance) or Prince Regent for ExCeL (for the east entrance). DLR is overground train. Hope this helps!
