We exhibited at the recent London Interop, and were amazed at the quality of venue... no better place on the planet for hosting a massive-scale event... Stay at one of the local hotels to keep it easy (Novotel, Crown Plaza, Yacht hotel, Ibis)

Everything went very smoothly A couple of things - as is often the case at these types of venues the food options were unexciting and expensive The other is nothing to do with excel, they can't change it - but even...

I attended for a conference/exhibition. Easy to get to. A warm welcome to a big building from friendly and helpful staff. Very clean and well looked after. Well organised

I like the tidiness, nice space, the docks view. I don't like exorbitant prices of everything (coffee and food). The nice is walking distance to DLR.

The strict, no make that exceptionally strict, application of the "£1 per item" rule is taken to absurd lengths when a coat and hat or coat and scarf are charged at two pounds. Seriously unimpressed. Especially as one has to queue to deposit and queue a lot longer to retrieve items. No major European conference centre, nor most in the... More

A good venue and easy access with DLR, nice and clean. Many restaurants inside with different kind of food. Also near City Airport for quick access.

Came to the ExCel for the SHERLOCKED convention and had an amazing time. The staff were friendly and helpful and really made it easier when there were large queues for photos and autographs. Definite thumbs up to the guys trying to organise the 500 people trying to queue for Benedict Cumberbatch photos. They organised it perfectly and did their best... More
