In this information packed episode James Rees, Director of Conferences & Events for ExCeL shares how ExCeL re-purposed underutilised space to create CentrEd and meet the growing demand for small meetings. He goes on to explain how the design of CentrEd was driven by client feedback and what clients wanted out of ExCeL.

James believes it's very important for venues and organisers to work together to better under the stakeholder and deliver desired returns. He talks about how ExCeL is using tech to understand visitors, and is using big data to profile "Mr. & Mrs. ExCeL" in order to personalise their experience.
