The London ExCeL is an exhibitions and international convention centre that first opened in November 2000. Built by Sir Robert McAlpine in the Custom House area of Canning Town, East London it is located on a 100-acre site on the northern quay of the Royal Victoria Dock in London Docklands. Sited between Canary Wharf and London City Airport within the London Borough of Newham.
The exhibition building itself consists of two column-free, rectangular, sub-dividable halls of approximately 479,493 square feet (approximately 44,546 m2) each, on either side of a central boulevard containing catering facilities and information points. There are also three sets of function rooms, one overlooking the water, another above the western end of the central boulevard, and the third on the north side of the building. These are used for smaller meetings, seminars, presentations, and corporate hospitality. There are six hotels, more than 30 bars and restaurants, plus 3,700 parking spaces on the campus.
