The National Exhibition Centre is the UK’s largest exhibition centre, attracting some of the biggest conferences and businesses eager to showcase their wares. Situated in Birmingham, the centre keenly balances its agenda between business efforts and general interest pursuits; the yearly events roster at the NEC ranges from cutting edge science shows and automotive technology to humble gardening and culinary matters.

Best known nationwide as being the venue for the yearly canine competition Crufts, the NEC opened in the 1970s and intended to be one of Birmingham’s first steps away from an industrial-based economy. Since that time success and favour has burgeoned, with industry professionals and the general public eager to showcase and attend the varied, lively and intensely interesting events on show all year round. Having experienced impressive modernization and expansion in 2009, the NEC is in prime position for top notch UK events hosting for many years to come.
