ExCeL London meets market demand
As the demand for internal meeting spaces continues to see an upturn, ExCeL London has put the finishing touches on a major refurbishment of its self-contained Platinum Suite conference centre.
Offering catering for up to 1,100 delegates, ExCeL’s Platinum Suite is split across three levels and specifically designed for meetings, AGMs, gala dinners, product launches and award ceremonies. A six-figure transformation earlier this year created a fresh look and feel throughout, as well as added new lighting features and enhanced planting. The design team also worked with UK artist Liam Roberts to help dress some of the rooms.
“Prior to the pandemic, the importance of internal meetings was perhaps considered secondary by some organisations,” said James Rees, executive director of conference and events. “But now we are seeing a notable shift in priorities, with internal meetings expected to see the biggest percentage increase this year at 4.5% globally.”
The refurbishment project enhances the venue’s appeal, as does its being just 12 minutes from central London thanks to the new Elizabeth line, and three minutes from Canary Wharf.
