Following the recent events in both Manchester and London, our thoughts remain with those affected by these tragic incidents. We continue to admire and support the resilience shown by those directly affected, the emergency services and the surrounding communities as they move forward at this difficult time.

Public safety at our events continues to be our priority

We understand that you may be concerned about security for upcoming events at our venue. Please be assured that customer and staff safety at our events remains our priority.

Our event and security teams continue to remain vigilant and, together with local and national authorities, we are reviewing our security measures on an on-going basis to ensure our visitors have the safest and most enjoyable experience whilst visiting the NEC.

We have a number of security measures in place and you will see an increased security presence on our site. Please arrive as early as possible to allow time for enhanced security checks and we encourage you to only bring essential items. Bags no larger than a small laptop bag or handbag may be allowed into the event.

We would like to reinforce that the advice from the government is to “be alert, not alarmed”, and we wish you an enjoyable event.
