Accommodation

Special accommodation rates have been secured at Aloft London Excel, which is next to the conference venue.

In addition, you have the option to directly book hotels either close to ExCel, or for those who want to experience London more closely, we recommend hotels in the Green Park and Westminster areas which are only 20 min from ExCel via the Jubilee Line and DLR.

We use Ellis Salsby as booking agents; this page on their website makes booking accommodation easy for the SOA.

  • The “live availability” button defaults to hotels around ExCel as this is the most commonly requested
  • At present the central London options are accessed by entering the postcodes suggested at the bottom of the agency page.

We are working to make this more intuitive, but meanwhile we suggest you book via this route now, to get the best rates.

Alternatively contact Jayde Betson for personal advice and booking, on +44(0)1562 821 711 or by email: bookings@ellis-salsby.co.uk.

Travel

Travelling to the ExCeL is easy – transportation comes frequently and it is easy to get to from any part of London.  The venue website has a great travel planner; or see the bottom of this page for directions.

ExCel East has a dedicated DLR station (Prince Regent ExCeL) which links directly to the Tube and is just under 20 minutes from Waterloo, London Bridge, Bank and Stratford underground stations.

ExCel is 5 minutes from London City airport, and we strongly recommend this option if flying.   It has great links with Heathrow and Gatwick as well but the travel time is longer.

Address:  The ICC, East ExCeL, ExCeL London, One Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock, London, E16 1XL
