The NEC holds the acclaim of being the largest events venue in the UK with 20 halls and 34 meeting rooms set out over a vast 186,000 sq metres. An all-purpose venue, the NEC not only offers significant indoor space with integrated seating, but also has a newly opened beach and lake for exhibitors and delegates to enjoy. The NEC is one of the most accessible venues in the UK and, with Birmingham International Airport on its doorstep, offers great international connections.

As the sister venue to ICC Birmingham, the NEC continues to evolve and grow, with an extensive £4.5 million redevelopment that began in June 2018. The calibre of the NEC is emphasised by its neighbouring infrastructure; from a thriving 24/7 business and leisure scene to the soon to be opened high-speed rail network HS2, the NEC is fast becoming the nerve centre of the UK, bringing the north and south together like never before.
