In 2018 the latest addition to London’s sophisticated transport network opens in the form of the Elizabeth line, or as we like to call it, the Events Super Highway!
This new line stretches for more than 60 miles providing a fast, efficient service across London, and it’s estimated to add a £42 billion boost to the UK economy.
Even better, with the opening of Custom House - a dedicated on-site station at ExCeL London - CentrEd at ExCeL is at the heart of the UK events industry. Here’s just a few reasons why the Elizabeth line will enhance your meetings and training at CentrEd.
Make offsite meetings even more convenient
There’s a wealth of research behind the benefits of offsite meetings. From enhanced creativity to improved strategic decision-making, hosting meetings away from the office are the secret weapon to maximising your business potential.
We know it can be difficult to find time in the diary to travel to and from offsite meetings, but thanks to the Elizabeth line CentrEd will be just three minutes away from Canary Wharf. Plus, delegates can stay connected ahead of meeting or training sessions, with on-board Wi-Fi and 4G available.
Increase your attendance rate
More delegates can attend your meetings or training days with greater ease. The Elizabeth line will run a minimum of twelve trains per hour, with capacity for up to 1,500 passengers per train. Early statistics show the line will carry 10 million people every year in comfort and style – boosting London’s rail-based capacity by 10%.
What does this mean for your events at CentrEd? In addition to being conveniently located to London’s major business hubs, fast travel times and easy connections to mainline stations and beyond means delegates can maximise their time at your meetings or training days. No more rushing off as soon as the clock strikes 5pm to make that tricky train time.
Make the city your playground
The Elizabeth line delivers high speeds across the city, connecting your delegates to popular destinations such as Canary Wharf, Liverpool Street, Farringdon, Bond Street and Paddington in under 20 minutes. Not only is this a huge plus for delegates travelling from across London, but it makes the city your playground.
CentrEd is now more connected than ever to the pleasures of London, from the world-renowned entertainment to Michelin-starred restaurants and nightlife. Better yet, we can help you unlock London’s potential with our network of carefully selected partners.
