Whatever the event, ExCeL has the perfect space for you. ExCeL is located in London’s historic Royal Docks, within close proximity to Canary Wharf, The O2, London City Airport and the City of London.

The venue sits on a 100-acre site, with space including large, multi-purpose event halls to state-of-the-art conference facilities and smaller meeting rooms. It is also home to London’s International Convention Centre (ICC London), which includes a fully flexible auditorium, catering and exhibition space and a multitude of meeting rooms, from 10 boardroom to 1,000 theatre style.

The site includes eight onsite hotels and numerous bars and restaurants and when the Elizabeth line opens at the end of 2018, ExCeL will have its own onsite Elizabeth line station at Custom House, connecting delegates to Heathrow in 43-minutes and central London in 15-minutes.

Here is a rundown of the space on offer:

CentrEd at ExCeL delivers a complete meeting experience for your team to question, explore and learn. It offers a comfortable and stimulating environment in addition to the latest tools and technology, providing a training and meeting facility dedicated to providing your teams with the right environment for learning.

Event Halls

ExCeL London’s multi-purpose Event Halls offer a totally blank canvas, unrestricted by pillars or awkward corners, ideal for anything from exhibitions and conferences to association meetings, congresses, product launches and AGMs. In addition to being London’s largest event space, the Event Halls are also ideally suited to holding several parallel events. They can be partitioned into smaller, acoustically-discrete sections, which can host several different events under one roof, with easy access to the rest of the venue.

ICC Auditorium

The UK’s largest flexible auditorium provides fully adaptable seating configurations to create event formats for up to 4,500. Working alongside a dedicated onsite technical team, the ICC Auditorium gives limitless scope to your presentational and creative ideas. In addition to the ICC Auditorium, the Event Halls provide flexible space to build bespoke auditoria from 1,000 to 20,000+.

ICC Capital Lounge
A suite of six executive board rooms located within ExCeL’s International Convention Centre. The ICC Capital Lounge has capacities for up to 50 (theatre style) and is ideal for smaller events, including private briefings, and senior level one-to-one meetings.

ICC Capital Hall

The ICC Capital Hall can accommodate up to 2,700 diners for a banquet and up to 5,000 guests for a standing reception, making it an ideal space for award ceremonies and parties. In addition, the ICC Capital Hall offers adaptable space with scope for impressive exhibitions, poster sessions and large parallel events. The space can also be linked to the Event Halls to create a multi-level event space.

Platinum Suite

Located in ExCeL’s central boulevard, the Platinum Suite is a self-contained conference centre ideal for meetings, gala dinners, product launches and award ceremonies. Available for exclusive hire, across three levels, this facility can be combined with the Event Halls and additional meeting rooms as part of a large-scale event.

All rooms benefit from natural daylight, with floor to ceiling windows, and access to private balconies. The Gallery Rooms are also an ideal complement to events taking place in the Event Halls and Platinum Suite.

ICC London Suite
The ICC London Suite provides five meeting rooms with a total capacity of 400 delegates, adjacent to the ICC Capital Hall. The London Suite is ideal for small meetings, offices or additional breakout space.
