Iv’e been here for multiple events and it is one of the best venues I have been too. I would say it would suit most as its a large place with many different food options and plenty of toilets. Each section is numbered so if you loose a friend you can simply say which number you are close to. The area surrounding the Excel is a nice area too with multiple restaurants and hotels.
