Working with ExCeL
Spotlight on ExCeL employees
"I come from three generations of restaurateurs, so it’s fair to say food is in my blood. I did a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Business Finance. However, when it came to choosing a career, it was my passion for food that drew me back towards this industry. I work closely with our food partners on their business strategies to enhance sales, marketing and operations; ensuring that we maximise the opportunity every event brings. There are over 28 retail units in the venue, ranging from high-street brands and boutique units to collaborations with celebrity chefs. I love the excitement this role brings and the fact that no two days are ever the same!”Amy Chong, Head of Food & Beverage
“My grandad is my inspiration. He set up our family interior design business, teaching me to listen to my clients and understand what they are trying to achieve. I work with hundreds of organisers, exhibitors and out of home brands, helping them to tell their story. I am passionate about helping people bring their brand to life, connecting them with the right audience, to ensure their campaigns are successful.”Sneha Jangid, Media Sales Manager
“Doing my job well is fundamental to everyone’s experience, whether they are a visitor, exhibitor, organiser, delegate, contractor or a member of the ExCeL team. From a very early age I have taken a huge interest in technology. My role is about translating hardware and software requirements into a solution that works for the users, whether they are our customers or our staff. Last year we partnered with a professional services provider, to upgrade to the latest W-Fi standard (Wi-Fi 5), doubling the number of access points in each hall. This sets the scene for other projects to enhance the IT infrastructure.”Nishan Jugurnauth, IT Operations Manager
