Malleable Musings

ExCeL

Filed under: Conferences — Brendan @ 7:24 pm

The conferences that I’ve at this week have been held at excel, which is a pretty much in the middle of nowhere (out in East London).  It really doesn’t strike me as the best place to hold an international conference in which we’re trying to give visitors a positive experience of the UK.

It’s such a desolate location (all of the cafes and shops around here seem to close by 5pm) and it takes about an hour to get from here to anywhere in Central London (where all of the social activities for these conferences take place).

However in talking to a few British Council staff I think the general dissatisfaction with the venue has been noted and that we probably won’t be using ExCeL in the future.
