James Rees, Director of Conferences and Events, ExCeL London, commented: "ICC London has transformed London's image as a congress destination. The jump to number seven in the ICCA rankings coupled with the Olympic effect has also helped increase London's attractiveness as a leading events destination and we are seeing the effects of this not just in 2013 but in future years as well."
