Important Traffic Changes & Access Information

ExCeL is currently undergoing a significant 25,000sqm expansion programme to further enhance the world-class venue.

Access to the loading bays have been altered in conjunction with the enclosed map in which you will see the Traffic Office Booking-in and Holding Area has moved to a nearby site at Gallions Reach. This is located a short distance away and forms part ExCeL long-term plan to better manage traffic flows and ensure efficiently.

The relocated Traffic Office will be the first point of call for anyone requiring vehicular access to ExCeL for your event. Once there, each driver will be required to complete a Lorry Access Document (LAD) in the usual way. When the driver arrives at the venue, they will need to show the LAD to the Traffic Marshal who will then direct them into the standard traffic system to prepare to unload or load. If a driver arrives on site without a LAD, they will be given directions to the offsite Traffic Office to complete the above process. 

All exhibitors who are bringing stand materials to ExCeL and want to unload or load a vehicle on site will need to follow the below procedures.  

  • Parking is free for vehicles which are transit sized and above during build up and breakdown only.
  • When building up for an event at ExCeL, exhibitor vehicles should enter the site should report to the ExCeL traffic office located near Gallions Reach.
  • To access the north or south lorry way into the ExCeL halls, you will need to obtain a Lorry Access Document (LAD) from the traffic office. This document will ask you for information on the event/stand name, vehicle drivers name and onsite contact number and vehicle registration. It will also let you know the maximum amount of time that you will have to unload/load. The LAD must be always displayed within your vehicle. Please ask your contractor to have the details of the stand name and number that they will be working on.
  • Upon return to your vehicle, you will proceed to the traffic marshalling area where we will let you know which lane you should join to get on the lorry ways. When room becomes available on the appropriate lorry way, please follow the directions of the traffic marshals who will show you the way up the ramps and to the event hall doors. While the vehicle is stationary, please switch off your engine.
