The NEC Group is one of the world's largest venue management companies.[no citations needed here]


The NEC Group operates the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), the International Convention Centre (ICC), the Genting Arena (formerly the LG Arena) and the Barclaycard Arena (formerly the National Indoor Arena).[1] It also manages a range of support services including The Ticket Factory, catering company Amadeus; and the hospitality brand 'Amplify'.[2]

In recent years,[when?] the group has launched three additional internationally focused businesses; NEC Group International, offering venue management consultancy services, MemoryHaus to develop event content, and Eight Feet Tall, a specialist sponsorship and media sales consultancy for the live events industry.

Employing more than 1,000 on a permanent basis, with a further 700+ casual workers, the NEC Group also claims to deliver more than £2.1 billion annual impact to the regional economy and supports the full-time equivalent of 29,000 jobs.[no citations needed here]


On 16 January 2015, Lloyds Development Capital (LDC), a subsidiary of Lloyds Banking Group, acquired the NEC Group from Birmingham City Council for £307 million.[1] The deal transferred the NEC Group into private ownership for the first time. The council retained the freehold of all the venues.
