Way Finding – the first venue VMS in the UK
In 2012 the NEC became the first UK venue to introduce dynamic, digital VMS (variable messaging system) electronic way finding signage. We can instantly change its messaging, guiding visitors through from the main arterial roads around the NEC to park by the swiftest route - responding to changing traffic patterns across our estate and making the visitor experience as smooth and welcoming as possible. 2012 also saw the introduction of new colour coded finger post pedestrian signage, along with LED venue information screens at our bus stops. Our aim is to make getting here and getting around as easy and convenient as possible.
