Pop-up dining at ExCeL London

At ExCeL London, we will work with you to create branded pop-up restaurants as part of your event, creating an exciting, interactive experience for your visitors.

We work with top celebrity chefs to recreate the menus, atmosphere and service for which their restaurants are world renowned.

In May 2016, we brought two different restaurants to the show floor, allowing visitors and delegates to enjoy a first-class dining experience. Case studies from these two events are detailed below.

Please contact your ExCeL Account Manager to discuss ideas for your next event.

Video case study:
River Cottage at Grand Designs Live 2016

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage was brought to life at Grand Designs Live. The restaurant provided more than 3,000 visitors with an opportunity to experience his passion for food and use of locally sourced, seasonal produce.

The pop-up River Cottage Canteen experience was a collaboration with Media 10 Ltd, the organisers of Grand Designs Live.


“The experience of working with the venue and the show producer has been really good right from the word go.”

Case study:
Tom’s Kitchen at Adobe Summit 2016

At the 2016 Adobe Summit, ExCeL worked with Taylor Bennett Productions to create a memorable dining experience for their top customers and executives.

A 120-cover, pop-up version of Tom’s Kitchen was brought to the event floor, with dishes prepared onsite by Tom Aikens, one of the UK’s most acclaimed and inspirational chefs.

The restaurant was custom-built to recreate the relaxed and informal style of Tom’s Kitchen, with the menu featuring fresh ingredients, grown by local producers.
