Face coverings are a condition of entry – guests will not be allowed to enter the venue unless they are wearing a face covering.

Social distancing:

Relevant markers and one-way systems will be installed in public areas, including the central boulevard, circulation and networking spaces outside conference rooms, toilets, lifts, and cloakrooms, to help everyone keep a safe distance.

Cleaning standards:

The ExCeL Cleaning Team have been trained to deliver new cleaning procedures.

They have installed a Nimlok Entry Management System (NEMS) at the entrances of all bathrooms, located along the boulevard, to assist with managing the flow of people.
