Not as easy to get there..a lot of steps..from the DLR station. When you are in crowds..and not steady on feet...being shoved from the back is a recipe for disaster...and accidents to happen. I use the hand rails...and take my time...but this is often not good enough for some folks. The Excel was very warm....and the cloakroom about as far... More

World Travel Market was awesome! I was overwhelmed by the size of the place at first but it was certainly well suited to the expo and the additional assistance for transport in and out of the venue was helpful.

We were just a couple of tourists when we stumbled upon the ExCel London Centre and had heard of it, and thought let's have a look inside. Unfortunately, we were not interested in the PestEx exhibition (would have loved Cake International) but I really liked the centre. It was big, clean and spacious with lots of different food outlets which... More

My wife and I went to the DST3 event held at the ExCel centre, which was an amazing experience! The event was well organised, clearly displayed and filled with like-minded people!

Great space to host large events and functions. As far as the excel goes plenty of places to buy food of many different sorts and not too pricey. Cake international itself was extremely exciting for my cake obsessed wife.

Great location for large shows, with a large food court offering something to suit everyones taste. Easy to get to by train and underground. Both events were extremely busy and not suitable for young children, due to the crowds and people pushing and shoving. These events are great if you want inspiration, but products, equipment and tools were somewhat expensive.... More

2nd year at ExceL London for the impressive PestEx 2 day event. No problem with driving in as the site has lots of parking. Be good if you could pay by the hour though not just £15 flat rate.

DC World was good although overtaken by its partner event Cloud Expo this year. I met old friends and suppliers and crucially met surprisingly many new ones. Continues to be a great event, can't wait till next year! The excel is good and had outside seating this year, well done! Plenty of refreshments in the foyer area. Long way to... More

Good venue and easy to get to, even from the west. Parking was fine but there was a little bit of a queue to get in. Coffee bar inside wasn't brilliant (didn't know how to make the mocha they advertised!) but otherwise fine. The show itself was good with plenty on offer and well laid out.
