Take a trip to the NEC on your stay in Birmingham

One of Birmingham’s busiest venues is the National Exhibition Centre. We at Serviced City Pads guarantee you can book accommodation in Birmingham any week of the year, and there will be some trade show or public convention going on there. The NEC attracts capacity crowds every time the doors open.

If you want luxury serviced apartments in Birmingham’s NEC area, be warned that you will be near the airport and not much else, although the NEC has excellent rail and bus links.

If you are here on business, you will no doubt know the NEC well. Companies booking Birmingham serviced apartments for NEC conferences include those from the fashion, photographic, brewery, printing, food and wine industries – to name just a few.

Annual trade expos in Spring 2010 include: the 21st International PROMOTA Show (organised by the Promotional Merchandise Trade Association), the Food & Drink Expo (the UK’s largest food and drink trade exhibition), and the Off Licence Show – the only one of its kind in the UK.  Public events include the National Wedding Show, the Hobbycrafts exhibition, the International Dolls’ House Modelling Show, the Times Holiday and Travel Show and the National Outdoor Show.

Business travellers and recreational visitors alike are waking up to the fact that you can enjoy the NEC better from a distance. Trade and public exhibitions, while enjoyable, are hot, crowded and tiring. That’s why so many people jump in their cars and head for luxury serviced apartments in Birmingham’s chic city areas afterwards, in preference to overpriced local hotels.
