More than 100 schoolchildren from across the Royal Docks area took part in an Industry Day event at ExCeL to find out more about how businesses in the area operate. The event was organised by London City Airport and supported by ABP.
The young students were given presentations about the Royal Docks and how the investment locally will offer job opportunities for them in the future. Sophia Yu from ABP gave a presentation on the Royal Albert Dock project and answered questions.
One of the themes of the day was how the Royal Docks could be promoted as a world class destination and the students worked in teams to research and present their ideas and to make suggestions about logos and marketing materials.
The winning teams were selected by the business representatives at the event and one team won the ABP Prize: to work with the ABP London Communications Team to make a promotional video of their ideas which will be screened on the ABP website.
