    Well designed spacious event venue, been there twice already helping out at SitC and I love the amount of amenities that are present there, also free wifi so make the most of that! Amazing place!

    I really like the venue for fairs! It's light, the air is fresh, it's easy to find your way around and gastronomy is fantastic for such a place!

    If you are looking for a great cup of coffee head to the DP coffee bars in the middle of the boulevard. Artisan pastries & good selection of sandwiches & Paninis.

    Travel early so you can enjoy the ride on the DLR. All the food and drink is expensive at this venue but that's to be expected unfortunately. Do not use the wifi without VPN as it's hacker's paradise

    We paid to get food from one of the random stalls around the place but there are (or at least were) these awesome little vending machines selling small salads quinoa etc! They were cheaper too!

    Make sure you know which end of ExCeL you're going so you get off the DLR at the right station or else be ready to walk the place end to end

    If you are somehow involved in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries, then Blockchain International Show is a must-visited one for you! 6-7 of June, 2018. ExCeL London. See you there! ;)

    A superb venue for me, both as an exhibitor and a punter. Easy to get to and from as well be public transport of my own vehicle

    Check which end your event is at and use the nearest DLR station. The walk from one end to the other must be about a kilometre.

    The non-chain coffee stands in the boulevard make nice coffee and are reasonably priced. The tea's not bad either.

    Big center. Well organized. Use the bathrooms away from the center area. A lot less crowded.

    Check if you need to go to the East or West part as you'll have to get out from the DLR at a different station

    Better to get off at Prince Regent. It's a long way to get to Capital Hall Excel from Custom House for Excel.

    The main entrance is on the left as you walk over the bridge from the DLR station. There is an abundance of "no smoking" stickers that make it look as if you were not supposed to enter.

    If you want to sit down while eating, you're probably better leaving ExCeL and going to one of the restaurants nearby.

    Check which door you need to be at - the DLR stops at the highest end, the lowest ends are a long walk away,

    Big, aircraft-hanger-like conference centre. Does what it says on the tin. Just not conveniently located in London!
