NEC Offer for Exhibitors and Visitors


Accommodation Near Birmingham NEC

Are you exhibiting at a trade show? Catching your fave band in concert? Then you should stay in style in the heart of the city centre, just ten minutes from the NEC Campus. 

Make the most of your time in Birmingham at Staying Cool's apartment hotel at the Rotunda right in the centre of town yet just a two-minute walk from New Street Station.

From there the NEC and Genting Arena are just an eight-minute journey by train to Birmingham International (there are six trains an hour).

The Rotunda itself is but a stone's throw from Selfridges and hundreds of other shops, restaurants and bars including Bullring and Grand Central. In short, it's a far livelier place to stay than next to the venues themselves which are located right by Birmingham airport.

We look after many exhibitors and visitors to trade fairs at the NEC. Spring/Autumn Fair, Grand Designs Live, the BBC Good Food Show, Crufts and Brick are just a handful of big events in the city. Neighbouring the NEC is the Genting Arena, which hosts a wealth of concerts, live comedy and family favourites.


Our NEC VIP package includes: 

- Your choice of apartment

- Complimentary train tickets to and from the NEC

- Secure car parking at the nearby Bullring if required

In addition to all our other inclusive extras such as free Wi-Fi, Rude Health cereals, fresh milk and juicing oranges & grapefruits.
