Attended the NEC for the franchise show. It's a great location and very easy to find. It has ample space of parking but costs £12 to park. It has a free shuttle bus from car park to entrance. Few food outlets inside & coffee shops.

This was a good show, lots of stalls set up to buy one off clothing. Very close to the train station.

I went for the final day, the Sunday. It was amazing! To get the chance to meet all my Trek heroes was a dream fulfilled. The staff were helpful and organised. The guests were polite and friendly. Can't wait for 2018!

Visit on the last day, very busy but all smooth getting in etc. Was shocked there was no security checking bags????? Plenty of buses to/from the car park. Car parking was £12 just a rip off in my view.

Went to NEC for the above mentioned show. What makes me mad is the ridiculous price you have to pay for parking £12. You’ve already paid for a ticket for the show!

The nec is large, open, plenty of walking room, whatever you are visiting for it will be well signposted. Food & drink is obvs more expensive than outside. 2 small portions of chips i think was £5. I did see a cheese toastie for £6.95...More

£12 to park your car! Really! Seriously! I've parked in airports cheaper than that. Outrageous rip off, especially as there is no shortage of land nearby.

I think you'd have to contact the organiser the event rather than the exhibition centre hosting the show. Web search or social media should give links.
