Construction is expected to start in 2022 and is scheduled to be delivered in 2024. Once complete, ExCeL London will boast an additional 12,000 sqm of exhibition space, increased convention space, more meeting rooms, conference space and catering facilities on the upper floor.
The investment will also see land scaping and greenery added along the dock edge with the addition of a pocket park for delegates to enjoy some tranquillity.
As well as surpassing industry standards in sustainability, the plans include new exhibition and convention space, including state-of-the-art meeting rooms, breakout space, gardens and enhanced catering facilities over three levels.
ExCeL’s CEO Jeremy Rees said: “The expansion of ExCeL will ensure that London and the UK remain internationally competitive and a destination of choice for world-leading events, for years to come.
“Moreover, this investment will ensure that we can continue to meet the needs of our customers by providing opportunities for growth, complemented by a world-class guest experience.”
Humaid Matar Al Dhaheri, managing director and Group CEO of Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) added: “This consolidates ExCeL’s position as one of the largest exhibition and conference hubs in Europe and its pivotal role through the direct and indirect economic impact.
“The new expansion phase for ExCeL London contributes to our investments in the business tourism sector for the United Kingdom.”
The opening of the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) in 2022 will mean visitors can reach ExCeL in 15 minutes from Central London and 43-minutes from Heathrow, via the venue’s onsite Elizabeth line station at Custom House.
