The Business Show at the Excel will see tens of thousands of entrepreneurs and small enterprise owners seeking advice and inspiration.

Among the features of the event on Wednesday, May 11 and Thursday, May 12, will be seminars, workhops, live features and the latest exhibitors, eager to help business folk grow and improve their ventures.

If you’re one of the 25,000 people who want to take advantage of Britain’s biggest business exhibition, here’s how to get there.


Both Custom House and Prince Regent stations are a couple of minutes walk from the venue.

If you’re heading for the west entrance, Custom House is your best bet, while Prince Regent is best for the ICC London entrance or eastern side.


Canning Town is about ten minutes walk from the Excel centre and is served by the Jubilee Line and DLR.
