The successful hosting of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games put London in the world's spotlight. London continues to reinvent itself through continued investment and the creation of new attractions, venues and facilities.
ExCeL Centre London, which was one of the venues for the London 2012 Olympic Games, is one of the most advanced conference facilities in the world. It benefits from accessibility, stunning but functional architecture and state-of-the-art communication facilities. These attributes, as well as peerless educational display facilities make it the ideal venue. Its layout is perfectly suited for a mixture of academic sessions, plenary, breakout and parallel.
Crucially, the venue has ample space for exhibitors.
