Meetings and events
Make every meeting an event, for 10-10,000+ delegates
At the NEC, you’ll find everything you need to turn your event ideas into a reality. We’ll connect you to an ideal location, a perfectly flexible venue, a passionate experienced team and an entertaining campus offering for your delegates.
Our fantastic location means your delegates can enjoy a hassle-free journey and stay, courtesy of being at the heart of the UK’s motorway network with free onsite parking, train station and international airport. With 32 versatile conference and meeting suites and 18 halls to choose from you have complete freedom to shape and size any event exactly the way you want it.
The safety of our customers, visitors and staff is at the heart of our planning, so we have developed NEC Venue Protect; an all-encompassing toolkit based on a four-step approach to the safety and protection of people at our venue.
Flexible spaces, flexible thinking
Over 500 organisers take advantage of our venue every year. While no two events are ever identical, each and every one is supported by our attentive conference team to ensure it leaves a big impression, regardless of how much or little hire space you require. Use our handy Space Search to view our options which includes 32 purpose-built conference and meeting suites.
The NEC is the perfect venue regardless of the size and shape of your event. There are so many benefits of using us for your smaller events. For starters, we offer exceptional value for money. Then, there’s our convenient location, award-winning in-house catering with Amadeus and 40 years of venue experience. And did we mention we have an entertainment complex as a neighbour at Resorts World Birmingham and seven onsite hotels?
Mobile Tiered Seating
Now there’s a faster, more flexible and cost effective way to create the auditorium layout you want for your event – with our new retractile tiered seating system available in our Halls. With 7 tribunes of 273 quality seats available, you can comfortably seat thousands of delegates in any configuration.
