If you are using a satellite navigation system please enter the post code B40 1NT to pinpoint the NEC.

There is ample on-site parking at the NEC for £20 per car per day (unless booked in advance). Live traffic signs will direct you to the nearest available car park for Best Practice as you arrive on the NEC complex.

The train is also easy, with the NEC being served by Birmingham International Station. The NEC is connected by a covered bridge link directly from the station.

If you are coming from further afield, Birmingham International Airport is located on the NEC complex and is a short walk to the halls.

Best Practice has partnered with Event Express to get best practice delegates the Best Possible rates and booking terms.  They are experts in finding accommodation around the UK's major event hubs and have excellent contacts at hotels and guest houses for all budgets. Visit their booking site here.

Event Express are the only accommodation company we have authorised to work on our behalf.  If you are contacted by any other company claiming to represent Best Practice, CloserStill or the NEC, please alert us on


It has come to our attention that some of our delegates/exhibitors have been approached by a company called Exhibition Housing Services which looks like it may be aligned to The Best Practice Show.

Please note that this is actually a fraud and is nothing to do with the The Best Practice Show or CloserStill Media.

Unfortunately this entity has been operating in this manner for years and the authorities do not seem to be able to deal with them.

Please DO NOT book rooms or complete and/or return any paperwork to this company as you will then be legally bound to their terms and conditions

The NEC also has a Multi-Faith Prayer Room available for prayer, reflection or meditation - located on the Piazza (Halls 1-5) next to the chaplaincy office (by Subway). It has a washing facility, prayer mats, holy books and other resources for prayer which have been donated by representatives of local faiths.
