The NEC has invested in a new conference suite in response to organiser and exhibitor demand.
The Centre Suite, located in the Piazza, takes the venue’s total number of conference suites to 34. The move underlines The NEC’s commitment to changing perceptions, according to recently-appointed director for conference and live events, Adrian Evans.
“In spite of our continued successful delivery, we’re still not recognised for our conferencing capability and it’s a perception we want to change,” says Evans.
“We host over 400 conferences and live events and around 140 trade and consumer shows at the NEC each year, so we’re definitely the venue of choice. The next step is to get across the fact that we’re the perfect fit for events of all sizes and not just large-scale exhibitions.”
“The NEC’s largest Halls are on the Piazza side of the site and in offering the Centre Suite as a conference option, we’re responding positively to organiser and exhibitor demands for more space.”
