Assuming the bid is successful, the convention will be held in ExCeL London, London's largest exhibition and conference centre. We will primarily be using the new International Convention Centre, due to open in May 2010.

ExCeL is in the Docklands area, between five and nine miles east of the tourist attractions of central London. It has good public transport connections via the Docklands Light Railway, which has direct services to Tower Gateway and Bank stations, and connections with the London Underground's Jubilee line (and by 2014 also the District, Hammersmith & City and Central lines). It's only a mile from London City Airport.

There are currently five hotels on site Tripster, with over 700 rooms in four-star hotels (Novotel, Crowne Plaza and Ramada) and a further 300 in budget hotels (Ibis and Premier Inn). More on-site hotels are planned, and there are a further 600 rooms within a mile of the site.
