LONDON. OUR KIND OF TOWN.London is totally bursting with energy and excitement
[Single image of crowds shopping or other high energy street scenes]
It might be the legacy of the Olympic Games rush. Or it might be the fact that London has always had that 'bursting with energy' glow.
Probably a bit of both.
More restaurants than ever before; London now has a formidable total of 55 Michelin stars.
More superb hotels, shopping and nightlife than just about any place on earth (bar, perhaps, the Big Apple).
More entertainment from clubs to shows to concerts to theatre.
Thanks again to the Olympics, London's overground railway and riverboat services have greatly improved - which is wonderful news for TABEXPO 2015 at the ExCeL Centre.
London is simply hard to beat as the city for the next One and Only TABEXPO.

A MESSAGE FROM
THE CHAIRMAN AT
Following the huge success of TABEXPO 2011 in Prague, many people are working behind the scenes on TABEXPO 2015 and figuring out how we can continue to make it bigger, better and more relevant to our audience - you!
Selecting the host city for TABEXPO involved many considerations; accessibility, accommodations and their quality and location, a stable infrastructure, reasonable costs and the appeal of the city itself to our well-travelled and international audience. London continues the tradition set by our previous host cities of Vienna, Geneva, Barcelona, Paris and Prague, not just meeting our expectations but exceeding them.
After personal site inspections of the numerous venues available in London, our choice was the ExCeL Centre, by the Royal Docks on the River Thames. It is a large, modern exhibition hall, unimpeded by support pillars. It offers flexibility of space and reasonable rates that we can and will pass along to exhibitors and sponsors of TABEXPO 2015 London. Hotels of every caliber are convenient and numerous. Public transportation on the ground offers "to the door" delivery and multiple international airports provide numerous choices for participants and visitors from all over the globe. London has a long tradition of attracting discerning visitors, and ranks at the top of the world's "favourite places to visit."
Our industry has undergone drastic changes since the inception of TABEXPO in 1994 and TABEXPO has followed suit. After all, we know you now have choices when it comes to participating in face-to-face events. What hasn't changed, however, is TABEXPO's commitment to the premise that we serve ourselves best by serving our customers first. And with many of the same Tobacco Reporter staff still in place that helped bring you the first TABEXPO, we serve you best by knowing your needs, knowing your customers and knowing your goals as well as we know our own.
That history of service, knowledge and commitment continues today, and will only strengthen as we move toward TABEXPO 2015 London. TABEXPO is still your One and Only.
