This investment comes as a direct result of client demand for a high-end executive suite and will provide a state-of the art facility.
James Rees, Executive Director for ExCeL London, explains: "With the opening of our International Convention Centre we were able to provide a flexible event space to accommodate plenary sessions, exhibition content, workshops and breakout space. In response to client feedback, we recognised that we needed a 5-star facility for smaller events, including private briefings and senior level one-to-one meetings. The opening of our new ICC Capital Lounge provides the ideal high-end facility to complement our existing event space."
Rees continues: "Last year, 52% of new corporate contracts won at ExCeL represented a switch from a traditional hotel environment to a flexible venue format, such as our International Convention Centre, with clients including LinkedIn, Amazon Web Services, Adobe, Salesforce and Microsoft.
"Our new ICC Capital Lounge Rooms will further enhance our offer, with initial bookings reflecting the demand for this type of facility. We've already seen a 40% increase in bookings of this type, in what will be our busiest ever year for conferences at ExCeL London."
