Admission Policy 

ICE 2017 is a business-to-business event and has a strict policy of not admitting under 18s. Please read our admission policy here.


A fantastic range of food and drink is served from the many restaurants and shops on the Boulevard, ExCeL’s central hub. You’ll probably recognise some of them from the high street, whilst others have been created specifically for visitors.

There's plenty of choice and more than some just fit for salad days . You could meet up with colleagues and friends for a pre-show coffee, or kick start the day with a cooked breakfast in The Bridge. For lunch you can just grab a sandwich or a salad and sit on the Boulevard, or pre-book a table in one of the restaurants. The restaurants and bars stay open throughout the day and into the evening for a well-earned post event drink or delicious meal.
