Hard Surfaces 2023

Be part of the
'New London'

Held at ExCeL, in East London's  Royal Docks, the area around the Show set to be Europe's largest construction zone over the next decade with major commercial, residential and retail projects already underway and set to transform it into the capital's next business district. These include the  £1.5 billion deal to transform Silvertown Quays into London’s innovation quarter; the  £6 billion investment to convert Royal Albert Dock into the capital’s next business district; and the creation of the UK's largest floating village at Royal Victoria Dock.
The Royal Docks sits within an ‘arc of opportunity’, an area running from Stratford down the River Lea to the Thames that has £22 billion of further development potential.  This provides the perfect shop window for exhibitors at Hard Surfaces to showcase their products and services.

The ExCeL Campus

ExCeL is the UK’s premier exhibition venue hosting eight of London’s top 10 trade events and located within two hours’ drive of half of the visitors that register for any trade show in the UK.

Sited on the DLR (Docklands Light Railway), ExCeL's Custom House Station is only a few minutes walk from entrance. 

The ExCeL campus hosts an impressive eight hotels, meaning a good night’s sleep is never more than just a few minutes’ walk from the exhibition.  Hotels include the budget Ibis and Premier Inn; mid-range Novotel and DoubleTree by Hilton; luxury Crown Plaza and Aloft London ExCeL; and even two floating hotels the Sunborn London Yacht hotel and the Good Hotel London recently towed across from Amsterdam.

There is also plenty to do after hours on the ExCeL campus with a good mix of bars, pubs, cafes and restaurants to make your visit to our venue fun and enjoyable.
