The best venue to accommodate mass amounts of people. Great for ExPos, conferences, etc. Conveniently connected by Custom House DLR station (closed until December) and Prince Regent.

Have been here many times. Great public transport and huge halls. All serviced by excellent clean facilities. Have also used some of the rooms above the halls. Toilets there are a bit few and far between.

Visited this centre for an exhibition and although I have been on multiple occasions I only noticed today, due to the early access the extensive range of facilities available. Well done Excel!!!
