Micetalk - - COVER STORY -

For us, 2012 has been a year un­like any other with the Olympic and Par­a­lympic Games tak­ing place in the Cap­i­tal. In terms of ExCeL Lon­don, we saw an in­crease of 43 per cent in meet­ings busi­ness over 2011 and 2012. There has been a strength­en­ing of MICE busi­ness in 2012 and we are see­ing in­creased en­quiries in as­so­ci­a­tion con­gresses as well as a sig­nif­i­cant up­turn in cor­po­rate events. This has seen Lon­don’s ICCA rank­ing climb from 19th in 2008 to 7th in 2012.
