Coach services are operated by National Express and Megabus, with over 120 daily services from across the UK to Birmingham Airport. From here you can get to the NEC in minutes on the free air-rail link. More information.
The NEC is right next to Birmingham International rail station. You can get to any of our halls quickly and conveniently, without having to step outside! The NEC entrance is on the right hand side as you exit the station, and clearly signposted. More information.
The NEC is just minutes away from Birmingham Airport (BHX) – which is very handy for international visitors and those on UK internal flights!
