World leaders gather at ExCeL London to address global economic crisis

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office announced last week that it will host the World Leaders Summit in April at international exhibition and conference centre ExCeL London.
The event will bring together leaders of the world’s advanced and emerging economies, including the G20, and representatives of international financial institutions to work cooperatively to restore stability and stimulate global economic growth. Leaders will travel from across the globe to attend the crucial summit.
Commenting on the London World Leaders Summit, David Pegler, managing director of conferences, exhibitions and events at ExCeL London, said: “This is fantastic news for ExCeL and London. We have been steadily attracting an increasing number of international and high-profile events to our venue, many of which have rated ExCeL as their most successful event with the highest delegate and visitor numbers. The selection of ExCeL as the venue for the London Summit is testament to our international standing as a premier meeting and events destination.”
Pegler added: “This validates our £160m investment in expanding our venue exhibition hall capacity and building the London Convention Centre at ExCeL.”

Opening in spring 2010, facilities include a fully flexible seated auditorium for 5,000 delegates, conference suite with 17 flexible meeting rooms for up to 2,000 delegates, banqueting hall seating 3,000 and the latest technology.
“This will further cement London’s reputation as a world-class city for hosting successful events and conferences and help in attracting even more high calibre international business to the Capital,” concluded Pegler.
