The National Exhibition Centre (NEC) is an exhibition centre located near to Marston Green, Solihull. It was opened in 1976 and is the largest exhibition centre in the United Kingdom. There are now 20 interconnected halls covering 190,000 square metres (2 million square feet) of floor space, while there are 16,500 parking spaces spread around the halls, with a shuttle bus operating to and from the car parks. There is also an indoor arena on site called the Resorts World Arena, which has a seating capacity of 15,685 seats and is a venue for concerts and shows.

We're proud to deliver to exhibitions and shows at the NEC. Some of the items we can deliver include:

Exhibition Hire to the NEC

One of the things we’ve learned a lot about with the National Exhibition Centre on our doorstep is exhibition hire. We’ve delivered exhibition furniture hire to literally hundreds of events at the NEC, as well as to trade shows and events at venues throughout the West Midlands region.

One of our most popular products are our display cabinets for hire. These pieces of exhibition furniture are absolutely perfect for showcasing your products and services at an exhibition. We have various sizes of display cabinet to help you fit your stand footprint and all come with LED lights as standard. For those customers who are retailing at a show our cabinets with lockable storage areas are perfect for securely storing products as well as selling them.

Exhibitions are also important spaces to meet with potential suppliers, partners and customers. Whether is an informal chat in sofas around a coffee table, or a standup meeting at a poseur table in a tight space, we can help you.

Fridge Hire to the NEC

In need of extra refrigeration space to keep your food and drinks cold at your next event or occasion? We work with lots of commercial kitchens as well as with events and functions throughout Birmingham and the Black Country to help with fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers frequently deliver fridges for hire to venues throughout the West Midlands, helping to make sure that drinks and food are kept cold at events and occasions throughout the year.

We have a wide selection of fridges for hire in stock at Expo Hire Birmingham. For example, our upright glass-fronted display fridges are one of the most frequently hired catering hire products we have on offer. They go out on hire to a variety of places, from exhibitions at the NEC to restaurant kitchens and small functions. For those running pop-up bars, we stock double door bottle coolers which are great as an under counter fridge. If more specialist products are required, we also have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers available.

We know from experience that commercial kitchens often have little space to chill and prepare food. To solve this problem, we offer counter fridges with integrated workspaces which can be moved quickly into position with ease. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.

Exhibition Accessory Hire to the NEC

Sometimes it’s the little details that make events and exhibitions work better. We’ve put together event and exhibition accessory hire products which can help add the finishing touches to events as diverse as trade shows, seminars and conferences.

There are more fashion, vintage and preloved clothing events than ever and with this in mind we’ve got products to help make these shows a success. These range from the obvious such as mirrors and mannequins for hire, to the useful such as clothes rails and partition walls to create changing areas.

For those looking to showcase their services to customers, we have a range of literature, brochure and easels which make it very easy to have information readily displayed. We also have iPad stands which are great for creating a temporary EPOS solution for exhibitions and events.

To make a seminar successful, it’s important to have ways to show and teach information which are easily understood by attendees. For those using a laptop, having a smart TV or projection system can make it very easy to share a PowerPoint presentation; while a flip charts can help turn discussions into proper learning experiences. We also offer folding stages and PA systems for those who are speaking to large numbers of delegates.
