Getting to the show
Located just 8 miles east of Birmingham City Centre, right at the centre of the UK, the NEC is very well connected by road, train and plane. As a registered attendee of Spring Fair, you can take advantage of our many travel benefits.
For those travelling by train, buy tickets in advance from Avanti West Coast and receive 20% off. For international travellers, we’ve partnered with oneworld to give visitors access to exclusive discounted flights. And, if travelling by car, there’s free parking.
If you’ve decided that you’ll be visiting Spring Fair for more than a day, then you might want to consider accommodation in Birmingham. We have partnered with specialist accommodation agency Event Express to provide all Spring Fair attendees with discounted hotel accommodation and flexible cancellation terms.
An entirely exclusive and free to use service, the friendly Event Express team takes the hassle out of booking accommodation by liaising with hotels directly on your behalf.
We are doing more to make sure you have your best Spring Fair yet. New for 2020, we now have an online booking facility for EvViva restaurants in Halls 4 and 20 of the show. Beat the queues at the lunch hour rush and enjoy fresh delicious food, without the hassle.Discover more
Spring Fair Express
2020 also marks the launch of Spring Fair Express, a brand-new bus route to help you navigate your round our new show layout.
It is a continuous and FREE shuttle service. It collects and drops off from the following destinations.
Spring Fair pays for all attendees to receive free carparking for the entire duration of the show. There will be signage on arrival directing you where to go.
A shuttle service is available from all East and North carparks every day. The East carpark shuttle will service the Piazza and Atrium and the North carpark shuttle will service the Atrium.
A re-edited, refreshed show experience is coming. We’ve divided the show floor into two definitive shopping destinations – Gifts and Home & Living. To help you find your way around the show, we’ve colour-coded all 16 of our product sectors with a key 2021 trend colour from Colour Hive, our official trend partner.
Sustainability is now at the forefront of the industry. This year’s show will be host to a Sustainability Trail, making it easier than ever before for you to connect with sustainable suppliers. Use the new icons to identify sustainable exhibitors at the show, access the Sustainability Trail via the app and discover full exhibitor stories, pledges and initiatives on the exhibitor list online.
Make the most of your show. Spring Fair Match allows you to search for all the exhibitors, products and seminars at the show before the doors open - taking the work out of networking through intelligent matchmaking and giving you a higher return on your time. Plan your route around the show using the NEW interactive map feature (coming soon), pre-book meetings with exhibitors and curate your very own show calendar.
