How do I get to the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre?

Directions are available on the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre website here.


Will I be able to drive in to the hall?

No.


Will I be able to park my vehicle close to the hall?

What are the visitor entry times and costs?

Please see the home page for details.


Does the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre charge visitor parking?

No, the parking is absolutely free with no plans by the venue or NVCF organisers to charge for parking.


Will I get help loading into the halls?

If you need assistance please mention this when booking your stall and we will try to have help available. Primarily this service is for our disabled exhibitors. However, no table is more than a few metres away from the entrances/exits. We would also advise bringing your own trolleys to facilitate loading in.


What about rubbish?

Catering rubbish from the restaurant should be put in the bins provided around the hall. No other rubbish may be left by any stallholder at the end of the event. You are expected to take any unwanted items away with you and not to leave a pile of unwanted radios, empty boxes and other items at the end of the day.


Is there a restaurant or café on site?

Yes the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre has a 100-seater restaurant on a mezzanine level overlooking the main hall. Disabled dining tables will be located under the restaurant in the main hall.


Will I still have to bring my own chairs?

What about a cash machine?

There is a permanent cash machine inside the exhibition hall. A charge is made for cash withdrawals.
