Map & Directions

Road Directions

You’ll find us clearly signposted from all motorways and major routes including the M42, M40 and M6 - just pop B40 1NT in your sat nav to get close, then follow the signs when you see them.

When you arrive at the NEC, look out for the show name you're visiting on our signs. After parking, simply jump on our free shuttle bus, or take a leisurely stroll along our signposted footpaths.

Our post code will not take you to the car park for your event, so please follow signage.

Public Transport Directions

Getting to us by train is brilliantly easy as the NEC is located a five-minute walk away from Birmingham International Railway Station.
Direct services run all day, however if you’re travelling from further afield you may need to catch a connecting train at Birmingham New Street, which is less than a 15-minute journey away.
