Session booking

Transportation during the event

We are excited to be a part of Discover 2016 in London, a busy and vibrant city. Since road traffic can be unpredictable, we recommend using London’s public transport system, the best in the world. The London Underground (the Tube) and DLR (Docklands Light Railway) are the most efficient and cost-effective methods of travel during your stay.
We recommend that you purchase an Oyster Card on arrival in London or use one of the pay-as-you-go options for public transport. This is a more cost-effective option than purchasing tickets for individual journeys. Payment options on public transport are as follows.
  • Oyster Cards (£3.00 card deposit and a recommended £20.00 to cover three days of travel at Discover 2016)
  • Contactless debit or credit cards
  • Apple Pay
  • Android Pay
Clear travel instructions for the journey between event hotels and ExCeL London will be available at your hotel and the venue.
