National Exhibition Centre
It’s fair to say a lot has changed since HM The Queen officially opened the NEC in 1976. We’ve grown significantly in size and reputation for starters, to become the UK’s number one venue of choice for organisers, exhibitors and visitors. We originally had seven exhibition halls - today we have 20. Not to mention 34 conference suites and a host of additional outdoor spaces.
Over 500 organisers take advantage of our flexible conference venue and meeting room hire facilities 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 the many options available.
There’s a host of benefits for using us for your smaller events too. For starters, we offer exceptional value for money. Then, there’s the fact we have 34 purpose-built conference and meeting suites to choose from.
