ExCeL London has won the title ‘Venue of the Year’ at one of Europe’s premier awards ceremonies for the events industry, which took place in London last week.

Under the ownership of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC), ExCeL London beat off world famous competition including Manchester United Football Club, Wembley Arena and Birmingham NEC to win the accolade.

In addition to the success of ExCeL London, IDEX 2009, the 9th edition of the International Defence Exhibition and Conference, was highly commended at the awards ceremony as a finalist in the category for ‘Best Trade Show Over 2000m2’ acknowledging the size, scale and success of IDEX 2009.

The ‘Venue of the Year’ accolade recognises the achievements and initiatives of ExCeL London over the past year, with the most significant of these being the Phase 2 extension due for completion in April 2010.

 The AED 1 billion project, which was initiated by ADNEC after its take-over of the successful London venue in May 2008, will increase event space by over 50% and add 17 flexible meeting rooms, a 2000 seat conference suite and 5000 capacity auditorium, creating one of Europe’s largest exhibition and event venues.

Commenting on the success, Simon Horgan, ADNEC Group CEO, said, “This is an outstanding win for ADNEC against some incredibly tough competition. The success of ExCeL London confirms the wise investment decision of Abu Dhabi and provides the perfect platform for ADNEC to continue its strategy of developing a world class network of venues to serve the global exhibitions and events industry.

 I am also delighted that IDEX 2009 was a finalist in the ‘Best Trade Show’ category. The global exhibitions market is incredibly competitive and for IDEX to be recognised as one of the world’s leading exhibitions is a great honour.”
