I was there working on a stand at a medical conference, it is a huge place but well organised. Very clean, lots of varied food outlets in the boulevard. Not in the centre of London so if going there unless you want an hours commute better book in at the many hotels nearby (we booked an apartment as we were... More

I was there for a medical congress. A really big and well maintained venue, with good access using public transport, but it is quite far from central London.

I always enjoy the World Travel Market here. I wish that the eatery choices were better, but other than this I always enjoy my visit to Excel.

Recently attended the World Science Fiction Convention at the ExCel Centre. The weekend saw about 7,000 warm bodies, all in one end of the Centre, so it was busy, to say the least. I have to say that it was very rare that I felt cramped, which is a nice change at this type of event! The Centre is easily... More

Plenty of food outlets providing lots of choice for different tastes. Quick service too. Also adequate toilet and baby-changing facilities with lift access. Everything was kept clean - I never saw any mess ie empty take-away dishes, cups etc over the three days I spent there.

The positive side is that is so large that it will allways be able to house any sort of conference. The negative is that it is huge, more than 1.2Km from one end to the other, so if you are on the wrong side of the building, prepare for quite a walk! There are a lot of food outlets, but... More

I have attended this venue for two events, one as a straight attendee and the other someone working on the management of an event. They have a large concourse that runs the full length of the facility - which is quite impressive - it actually has two stops, one either end on the concourse on the London Docklands Light Rail...

Although the ExCel was practically deserted, there were still places to eat and drink open. The venue for my Law exam was well chosen. Good facilities and lots of quiet spaces to revise.

We were in the Excel for a convention (the 2014 Worldcon). The convention center hosted this convention (nearly 8K attendees) in just around a quarter of the building, and had room to spare for other activities... The Excel is well-designed and well-organized; there are enough fast-food shops and cafeterias to cater for a large crowd at lunch, and enough toilets... More

A really good venue. Went here for London Comic-Con. There are loads of different food places inside. We went when the place was absolutely packed. Impossible to find a full vending machine and the state of the toilets? Well...
