Meetings and events

Make every meeting an event, for 10-10,000+ delegates

You’d be forgiven for thinking we only cater for big exhibitions at the NEC - you’d be wrong though.

While we’re perfectly equipped to host an event for several thousand delegates, you’ll find us equally at home holding an intimate meeting for just 10 and just like our large-scale events, no shortcuts are ever taken, no corners ever cut. Anything is possible in our flexible spaces. With 34 versatile conference and meeting suites and 19 halls to choose from you have complete freedom to shape and size any event exactly the way you want it.

Space Search

If you would like to book a meeting room or conference suite for as little as 10 delegates to as many as 720 but you're not sure how much or which space you need, use our handy space search and let us select the right room for you.


Flexible spaces, flexible thinking

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. Of course there’s also our convenient location in the heart of the UK, award-winning in-house catering and 40 years of venue experience. And did we mention we have a casino, spa and outlet shopping resort as a next door neighbour?

Keep your delegates energised

We know food is one on the most important choices when selecting an event venue so at the NEC we indulge delegates all year round with a variety of catering options. Our in-house award winning caterer, Amadeus, will ensure the food at your event is a talking point for all the right reasons.

We don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach and the same goes for our food. With every conference and meeting being unique, so is the catering. Simple tea and coffee through to drinks and nibbles for a reception or product launch, to a five course dinner for 500 or catering for 2,000 the choices are endless.
