If you visited the ExCel earlier this year, you could have been served by contestants on The Apprentice.
The most recent episode of the hit BBC One show saw the entrepreneurs head to the London Pet Show.
Filmed back in May, it saw Lord Alan Sugar task the two teams of hopefuls with selling three different items each.
The ExCel’s executive director, Jeremy Rees, said: “It was fabulous to see ExCel and The London Pet Show showcased on BBC One last night.
“Around four million visitors and 40,000 exhibitors will attend events at ExCel this year, generating £2.9bn of economic impact to the London economy and supporting 32,000 jobs.

Scott Saunders’ team found themselves back in the boardroom after making nearly £1,000 less than their rivals on their cat-themed stalls.
He brought Selina Waterman-Smith and Ruth Whitely back into the boardroom – and it was the latter who was fired from the show.
The Apprentice is on BBC One every Wednesday at 9pm.
