    Default Who's Going to London Affiliate Conference and Why is the Hotel So Far Away!

    I'll be attending LAC again this year after skipping last year. I use to love that the official hotel was < 200 meters away in walking distance. I was about to book this year and saw that the official hotel is a 15 minute cab ride from the venue? What gives?

    They don't look for the nearest hotel, but the hotel that can make a reservation for a huge block of rooms and give a good deal for that. I absolutely saw almost nothing of London, but the area around Excel looked like a very boring area to me.

    we are attending
    And yes the area around excell is not a good area to stay.
    Area near the hotel is better with restaurants and bars

    Oh great. So Google maps gave me a low estimate? It's actually worse than 15min?

    I believe they chose the hotel in a central location because there is not really anything "social" around the excel and the networking events are closer to where the hotel is.

    The DLR takes only about 10-15 mins to get to and from the excel and in previous years they have had a coach that goes to and from the venue. I'm just not sure whether they will have one for LAC. I'm sure someone will post something about it sooner or later.

    To be honest, even when the hotel was close to the venue when it was at billingsgate, it still took over 20 mins to get there by cab. So not much different IMO.

    I will be at LAC with a small team. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    The Breakout team and I will be at LAC and we'll be exhibiting!

    Agreed the main hotel is far away, but there should be a shuttle service to make use of. (it's useful as long as you don't miss the bus)

    Hope to see/meet many of you there!

    For the hundredth time - you book the hotel near the spot where you expect to be on the verge of needing medical help at 4 AM. So you can't book a hotel before you know which parties you're going to.

    Noobs.

    When you go to London you just have to accept that fact you will need to do a bit of travelling.

    Last year they had a coach from the main hotel on the Saturday but not the Friday as the traffic is too bad so would take too long. Most people just used the tube which is the quickest way to travel.

    There are a few hotels around the excel however like most have pointed out there is not much going on there in terms of nightlife.

    There's usually a free bus to the conference anyway so the distance v's cost can be reduced if you get out of bed early enough.

    I'll be in London too if anyone wants a catch up, maybe some GPWA meetup soft drinks could be good?

    Move it back to Kensington Olympia I say, it was a brilliant location for everything.

    I will only go to the actual conference for one day next year, not traipsing down to the Excel twice.

    Location was great but the venue was too small. Was nice to be able to get up 5 mins before and walk over to the venue.
