Excel London has opened a suite of six new boardrooms in its International Convention Centre.
The new meeting spaces represent a £500,000 investment in the venue. Management says the reconfiguration was a direct result of client demand for a high-end executive suite.
Executive director James Rees, said that following the opening of the International Convention Centre it was recognised that a five-star facility for smaller events, including private briefings and senior level one-to-one meetings was needed.
“The opening of our new ICC Capital Lounge provides the ideal high-end facility to complement our existing event space,” he added.
“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 ICC, with clients including LinkedIn, Amazon Web Services, Adobe, Salesforce and Microsoft,” Rees said, adding: 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.”
