Make sure you know on which side of the centre you want to be, because I got off at the wrong stop and took about 30mins to get through the centre. If you get off at Prince Regent Station that's very convenient for the Convention bit, where Worldcon was held. Also they have charging facilities around the place and so... More

Over the years I have been to the Excel many times for a whole host of things! It's an amazing facility, which holds a spectacular range of events. Recently I attended the Skills London fair with family and the ComicCon about a month apart! How's that for variety! The quality of the expo depends on who is hosting but I... More

I attended this convention but unfortunately didn't have much time to explore the venue. It was too huge to see it all in a few days! Next time!

Participated in the LinkedIn Talent Connect Conference - great vibe, loved the fact that we could ourchase coffee and snacks and not bebound by the conference facilities. Clean bathrooms. Stunning large venue facilities, good security.

Great place to visit a fair. Spacious, more than enough restaurants and places to get a drink. Easy to access, but transportation to the city centre is at the end of a fair a nightmare.

I recently attended the World Travel Market at this venue. I had knowledge of this building as been there in the past. The transport to the venue was smooth and uncomplicated. I came from both Tower Gateway and Statford. Am looking forward to future events at this building

Asked for help by excel and wad passed from piller to post. No one was willing to acknowledge the lack of signs and the... More

We attended the WTM this year and the organization inside Excel was very good. The transport to Excel was also costumed for the needs of the exhibitors and visitors; very easy to access Excel and find your way to the different entries. The DLR and Underground personnel was also very useful giving indications on which platform to sit on and... More

The venue is awesome. My only problem was the signage to the venue itself. For such an important venue I would have expected signs to be emblazoned across every intersection, but alas no. Apart from that the access into the venue during the World Travel Market was smooth and uncomplicated. There were enough eateries to choose from. Enjoyed my visit.
