The NEC has been voted ‘Best Venue’ in the inaugural Exhibition News ‘EN Elite List’ after almost 2,000 readers voted on factors such as quality, output and consistency of service.
The UK’s number one venue beat off stiff competition from the capital, with ExCeL London and Olympia London taking second and third respectively.
“Team NEC brings together many different people, departments and organisations who pull together with a shared goal of delivering great customer service and exceptional operational delivery,” says Kathryn James, the NEC’s Managing Director.
“Being selected as the number one venue in the Exhibition News ‘Elite List’ is industry-wide recognition of the spirit and hard work put in by everyone, in every part of the team, as they consistently go the extra mile day after day.”
NEC-hosted shows also celebrated success in EN Elite List podium spots; based on the official ABC audited number of visitors that attended each show between November 2013 and September 2014, Spring Fair International took first place in the Trade Show category with 65,770 visitors.
Based on audited visitor numbers between September 2013 and May 2014, the Motorhome & Caravan Show was ranked third in the Consumer Show category with 104, 347 visitors.
OCS was ranked third in the Operational Staff category, another great result following the team’s recent award win for Security Partnering Initiative of the Year at the IFSEC Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2014, in partnership with the NEC Group.
