The NEC uses International Confex to launch three new products

The NEC has launched three products for live event and conference organisers at Confex.
Birmingham venue launches its new live event product Black Box,
developed to make it easier for clients who have outgrown the conference
facilities to move into one of the NEC’s 20 interconnecting halls to
host their conference or product launch.
The product serves to
create event infrastructure, power, drapes, carpeting, furniture,
cleaning, security, AV, staging and other conference facilities, plus
extra solutions on top of the standard package, such as catering.
new solution means clients don’t have to worry about sourcing all of
these things separately and know the costs up front,” said Live Events
account manager Jenny Lightfoot. “It will deliver great benefits to our
clients, especially those that have outgrown our existing conference
facilities and would welcome additional support to move their event into
the halls.”
The NEC’s new Day Delegate Rate (DDR), aimed at
conference organisers, offers preferential room hire rates from 8am
until 6pm. The venue has 33 conference and meeting rooms, and in 2011
hosted 354 conferences and meetings.
“We are launching our DDR
to create a value offering that will help organisers,” said NEC Conference Account Manager Louise Hankinson. “We are well aware of the
tough economy and therefore wanted to create a product in line with
today’s market.”
The NEC is also offering eight per cent
commission on pre-ordered food and beverage, and hall rental, for venue
finders, professional conference organiser and production companies
bringing their events to the venue between 1 April 2012 and 31 March
The NEC has refitted its Skywalk with LED lighting in order “to improve its visitor experience” while saving energy and lowering carbon emissions.
