Plan to arrive early

Events at the London ExCel are extremely busy as stated above. To avoid the rush, try and arrive early. This will give you time to look at the different stands and speak to exhibitors before the real crowds descend!

Prior to attending any event at the ExCel, you should scope out the event schedule. This will let you know what’s happening when, including any talks or seminars that are taking place. You might want to see certain demonstrations or speak to specific people and this menas you don’t miss out. You can also plan a route if the event is taking place in multiple rooms.

Events at ExCel London are fantastic for networking opportunities so you want to try and take advantage of these. Bring business cards with you and make time to speak to stall holders and exhibitors that you could potentially partner with.
