Venue update

We continue to closely monitor the advice of WHO, PHE and Government in relation to COVID-19. The threat of the virus has impacted many events and we are working closely with organisers to reschedule them. Our principal concern remains the welfare of our staff, customers, suppliers and visitors. 

Our Piazza entrance is open 8.30am-6.30pm daily. Outside of these hours, a walking route is available from Birmingham International Train Station to the rest of the NEC Campus. Our campus neighbours Resorts World and The Bear Grylls Adventure are now open. The Crowne Plaza, Hilton Metropole and Moxy Birmingham NEC are still temporarily closed. Meanwhile, in line with Government guidance, we are preparing for the return to event activity from 1st October.
