Blitz is now the sole onsite preferred supplier for audio, video, lighting and staging across all event spaces at ExCeL. These include ICC London, the UK's largest fully-flexible 5,000 seated auditorium; Capital Hall, London's largest banqueting hall seating up to 3,000 guests; the 87,328m2 multi-purpose Event Halls; the 45 Gallery Meeting Rooms; the self-contained Platinum Suite; and the Capital Suite comprising 17 individual meeting rooms.
Blitz first partnered with ExCeL in 2005 and this will now be the third time the parties have signed services contracts. The new agreement has come about in response to the ongoing business development at ExCeL, particularly following the successful launch of the ICC facilities in 2010.
The venue is attracting an ever increasing range of customers utilising the different event spaces, be they small exhibitors or very large congress organisers and the new 5 year agreement will ensure that class leading AV provision will be a seamless part of the venue proposition going forward.
Blitz will offer a team of seven experienced professionals on-site, complemented by an extensive inventory of the best in equipment.
James Mark, Executive Director at ExCeL London, commented: "We have had a close working relationship with Blitz over the years and have always been impressed with the quality of service that they have offered. After a full review, we were pleased to see that Blitz shared the same service delivery objectives and ambitions to invest in new technology such as digital signage and event metrics going forwards so were delighted to appoint them for a further 5 years."
Munir Samji, Blitz Executive Chairman, added: "This is a massive win for Blitz and gets the New Year off to a fantastic start! ExCeL's continued appointment of Blitz is a great endorsement of our capabilities, and naturally we will continue to ensure that every user of the venue receives a first class service".
