Earls Court and Olympia Venues and ExCel London were among the venues honoured at the recent Visit London conference and exhibition venue awards.

Held at the Royal Albert Hall, the annual awards celebrate the very best of the capital's venues, attractions and services and are selected by a panel of nearly 50 industry experts. EC&O Venues approach to sustainability was recognised while ExCel London won the Business Venue of the Year award.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson commented: "Tourism is critical to our capital as the industry's success translates directly into jobs for London and Londoners. These Awards show the range and excellence of what the capital has to offer the visitor, especially in the conference and exhibition industry"

EC&O are understandably working towards a sustainable future, but when will the hotel industry catch up? The Conference People constantly advise clients on ways to make their events greener and more sustainable, but true green events are just a pipe dream until the hotel industry starts genuinely tackling even the basic issues such as recycling and sourcing local produce.
