Be a part of the 'New London' - Prosper at the Natural Stone Show
The 9th UK Natural Stone Show returns to ExCel, London 15-17 March 2011.
Situated just 10 minutes from Europe's fastest growing business district Canary Wharf, ExCel is ideally placed to take advantage of the shifting balance of investment, jobs and infrastructure to London's eastside, providing an ideal platform for exhibitors to source business at The Natural Stone Show.
Momentum for this 'New London' is being provided through the construction of the Olympic Park and the continual re-development of the Royal Dock, both of which lie directly adjacent to ExCel. These projects form just two components of Europe's largest regeneration scheme - the Thames Gateway. Stretching east from London's Tower Bridge to the mouth of the Thames, the project aims to create 160,000 new homes and 225,000 new jobs by 2016 with the Government committed to transforming the Gateway with £9 billion worth of investment by 2014.
Keen to take advantage of this bright future, the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) acquired ExCel in June 2008 and have already added 32, 500 square metres of flat-floor event space through an extension to ExCel's east wing and London's first International Conference Centre (ICC), both on the doorstep of the expanding London City Airport. A £50 million 'Aloft London Excel' hotel and a range of ambitious mixed use developments promise to transform the ExCel campus over the next four years.
The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will be the catalyst for the regeneration of the Lower Lea Valley in East London and after the Games the area will be transformed into one of the largest urban parks created in Europe for more than 150 years. Tenders for projects such as the Gallions Quarter in the Albert Basin will start to be released as we move forward into 2011.
