NEC Group

The NEC Group is a British company that owns and operates four venues in Birmingham: The National Exhibition Centre, from which it gets its name, but also the The International Convention Centre, the LG Arena (based on The NEC site) and The National Indoor Arena.

The company also operates Amadeus - an external catering division, which provides services to prestigious events such as the Loch Lomond golf tournament.

The company is owned by Birmingham City Council and the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, but the City Council is held financially responsible.

A study by KPMG conducted in 2008 shows that The NEC Group is a major contributor to the West Midlands Region, making a positive contribution of £2 billion a year to the economy and supporting the full-time equivalent of 29,000 jobs.
