We're working on making sure Bett is a fantastic experience for all. Part of this includes ensuring we can cater for a variety of accessibility and communication requirements. We hope this page helps you plan your journey at our show.
Accessibility at Bett
Getting to Bett
There are two stations at either entrance to the EXCeL (Prince Regent and Custom House) both have step-free access. Bett will be promoting the Prince Regent as primary entry to the ExCeL due to its location to the exhibition. Entry from the Custom house station will require a walk of approximately 600 metres to the Exhibition Hall. The Prince Reagent DLR Station is a significantly shorter distance to the Exhibition Hall.
Attendees wishing to drive to Bett will have access to onsite parking at the ExCeL. There are 80 suitable spaces for those requiring disability parking, these are located throughout the car park. These spaces have minimum dimensions of 5.9m by 3.6m. Access to the ExCeL from these spaces are step-free using walkways and lifts with automatic doors.
The entrances and exits to and from the ExCeL are accessible to wheelchair via low gradient ramps and automatic doors.
Facilities and spaces
Bett, in collaboration with Findel, has a dedicated Quiet Space for those seeking sanctuary from the large crowds away from the show floor. It is free to use and located on West entrance of the ExCeL in N8 Lower. It can be located on maps or by asking a member of staff. We encourage anyone to use this facility as much as they need.
The team at Findel have provided the furniture and accessories for our quiet room. You can also find them at stand SK51.
The ExCeL has an accessible changing facility at the east end of the venue on level 1. It is accessible via a radar key. If you don’t have one of these, one can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The closest station to this facility is Prince Regent DLR. The space provides:
