About the venue
The National Exhibition Centre (NEC) , Birmingham is the UK's No 1 venue for shows, exhibitions, meetings and events. It is near junction 6 of the M42 motorway, and adjacent to Birmingham Airport and Birmingham International railway station.
How to get there
We strongly encourage visitors to use public transport. NEC offers a shuttle bus from the front of the train station (turn left at the ticket barrier and wait on the station forecourt) but it’s just as quick to walk, turn right at the ticket barrier and follow signs for the Sky Walk and Hall 9.
If you choose to drive, there is ample on-site car parking, charged at £15 a day, including a free bus shuttle to transfer you to the hall. On arrival, follow the signs for Highways UK as directed on the day.
Book your accommodation early, hotels on the NEC complex will be fully booked by early September.
