Exhibitor Catering

Food and Drinks / Catering

Situated within the boulevard along the central concourse of the venue and inside the event halls, there are a number of food and drinks kiosks supplying a variety of offerings with plenty of choices for most dietary requirements. Some of which will also be open during the build up and breakdown periods for exhibitors and contractors to enjoy. Opening hours will differ based on what events are in the venue, please visit https://www.excel.london/visitor/food-drink for more details. ExCeL London is now a cashless venue.

 

The venue regulations state that all food and beverages to be consumed onsite must be purchased from the retail units or from the in-house caterer, apart from food and drink brought by individual for personal consumption only. No external catering companies are allowed to provide food and drinks onsite at the venue or supply to the public.

 

Sampling activities are only permitted by the producer, manufacturer or seller of the food or drink product and for the sole purpose of promoting the bigger product. All sampling guidelines and food safety compliance must be adhered to, in line with the industry approved E-Guide. Please speak to the organiser for a copy of the guidelines. Prior application and written permission to sample must be obtained from the organiser and the venue before sampling can be carried out. Any activity found to breach any of the rules will be stopped immediately and may be charged a fee.

 

If you wish to provide hospitality to your staff or visitors, the onsite catering partner ExCeL London Hospitality (ELH) will be more than happy to advise you on the wide range of items available. Please visit ExCeL London on the different services they provide, or alternatively contact the sales team at ExCeL London Hospitality on sales@excelhospitality.london to discuss your requirements.

 

In the event that ExCeL London Hospitality cannot provide the food or drink that you wish to serve, which exceeds sampling size limits, you must obtain prior written permission from the venue and will be charged a corkage fee. Please note this includes the use of coffee machines on your stand. All food and drinks served at a party or reception must also be purchased through ExCeL London Hospitality, exhibitors are not permitted to bring in their own alcohol, soft drinks or food.

 

There will be onsite checks on stand catering activities, and we strongly advise exhibitors who are considering elements of food and drink offerings on their stand to follow the guidelines above.

Exhibitor & Contractor Welfare

We all have a duty of care to help and support event industry professionals and here at RX Global, the safety and wellbeing of everyone onsite is one of our top priorities.  Everyone has a role to play to look out and care for our colleagues and peers and we can all do this by taking the following steps:

  • Don’t request or plan for stand designs that can not be safely and comfortably constructed and dismantled during the published time available.
  • Provide sufficient amount of onsite crew to reduce long working hours
  • Ensure adequate breaks for staff
  • Everyone on site should have access to drinking water, catering facilities and rest rooms
  • Be kind.  Be considerate
