Where is the Global Excel Summit held?

Back in 2020, the inaugural Global Excel Summit was intended to be an in-person event. However, the COVID-19 pandemic scuppered our plans, forcing us to defer it to the following year, when we held it virtually. The two subsequent conferences were also held this way to err on the side  of caution.

However, Global Excel Summit 2024 has the luxury of being the first-ever hybrid edition. See more  details in the 'Global Excel Summit 2024' section below.

Will the 2024 event take place virtually again?

Global Excel Summit 2024 is the first-ever hybrid edition, featuring an in-person event held in London, UK, to go alongside our popular online offering.

It'll be hosted at the luxurious Vue Cinema in Westfield (Shepherd’s Bush), west of the capital.

The in-person conference is 6–7 February, with a dedicated online day on 8 February.

This is sandwiched between the Masterclass days — special sessions only available with certain ticket types. Some of these take place in-person only and others virtually.

We appreciate due to the  location and ticket limitations, this doesn't suit everyone. That's why we're live-streaming the whole event and ensuring it's accessible on desktop and mobile devices.
