NEC Birmingham Rigging

SXS provide services to many clients who are organising events at NEC Birmingham who require rigging, drapes, sound, video, production and lighting.

The NEC stands for National Exhibition Centre and is based in Birmingham, the UKs second largest city. The NEC Birmingham was opened in February 1976 by Queen Elizabeth II. It is host to 20 interconnected halls in grounds of 628 acres making it the largest exhibition centre in the Uk and seventh largest in Europe. The centre was originally going to be built adjacent to the M1 junction 21 near Leicester but it was turned down by Leicestershire County Council with claims that big shows won't move from London.

The NEC hosts hundreds of shows every year ranging from exhibitions, to bluechip AGMs, to conferences. Due to the size of the venue most events require considerable production support to allow for customisation of the space.

Many organisers having exhibitions and conferences at bluechip AGMs are often not UK-based. Such clients therefore require UK-side support from a reliable production and rigging company.

SXS are the perfect choice for this for several reasons:

  • We provide full 3D visuals and technical drawings for all events.
  • We provide detailed risk assessments, load calculations and event planning documentation that ensures everything run smoothly.
  • We own and provide the UKs widest range of production and rigging related services. This means that you can get a one-stop-shop service from us.
  • We are a friendly and client-focused company who really care about the quality of our work and your event.
  • We frequently work at most of the UKs leading venues and therefore understand their administrative processes to ensure smooth delivery

For exhibitions at bluechip AGMs we frequently provide:

  • Lighting truss grids
  • Crewing support
  • Drapery for exhibition stands
  • Exhibition lighting
  • Constructions for seminar and presentation spaces (typically sound-proofing drapes)
  • Audio/Visual support for seminar and presentations spaces

Please get in contact any time to discuss your event at NEC Birmingham.

NEC Birmingham are not a preferred venue for SXS and SXS do not have any unique affiliation with NEC Birmingham. NEC Birmingham is a venue where a wide range of production and rigging companies work.
