Great venue for this convention.Plenty of room for the ten thousand attendees! Hotels close by,as is the city of London airport.Plenty of public toilets ,which were always spotless.Loads of food outlets.The DLR stops right beside the west entrance-the station is Prince Regent-or a bit further away from the east entrance-Custom House.

Good place to see a conference, it was great during the Olympics and Paralympics for sporting events too! It is absolutely MASSIVE! Make sure you find out which side you are on before you go so you can get off at the right station! Use Custom House on the DLR for the West side and Prince Regent for the East... More

Went to a 3-day telecoms conference and exhibition in S1 & S2, plus a gala dinner and awards ceremony in the Platinum suite, followed by meetings using the South Gallery rooms on the second floor. Used rail transport from Paddington which was hassle free. Security staff and general facilities at the centre were very good and well priced, and the... More

doesn't do anything better or worse than any other exhibition centre I've been to, but it was very warm inside so the aircon isn't great. The roadworks made access from the river side a bit of a pain. Not a great selection of eateries I found, and I didn't spot a cloakroom either.

Attended a business event. Very easy to reach via the tube, and well sign posted. Facilities were clean. Didn't use any of the shops as the event provided refreshments. Seats were comfy, but too close to next person when in the theatre setting. Can't wait for the next opportunity to visit.

The ExCel arena is a modern and simple exhibition centre to navigate. Much better than the NEC as it only has one large corridor which all the halls follow off from. There are plenty of eateries present which include Subway, Bollywood Brasserie and Armadillo. One of the best events held here is The Outdoor Activities Expo held in February. The... More

Visited to attend the recent IFSEC event. The place is huge with great transport links into London. All security / reception staff were very helpful and happy to help with any issues.

Was able to attend for the Internet World 2014 marketing expo. Amazing building. Always tons of expos and events happening - some are free. Worth checking out their upcoming events to see if you will be in London at the same time as an event they are hosting. Restaurants and toilets throughout the building. Served by two DLR stations at... More

A very good venue for small to medium events. Really easy to get to and ticket prices vary from event to event as you would expect.
