As part of the deal to become the venue's exclusive rail partner, Virgin Trains will offer delegates attending one of the NEC Group’s venues a 25% discount on all advance fares along the West Coast Main Line.

The discount will apply to ICC Birmingham, the NEC, the LG Arena and the NIA.

Nick Waight, managing director, ICC Birmingham said: "Our exclusive rail partnership with Virgin Trains enables us to offer our clients and their delegates an additional benefit when choosing the ICC for their event.

"We are always looking for new ways to support our clients to achieve their event objectives, and with many of them already seeing an increase in attendance when at the ICC, this new offer could help them to attract even more delegates."

Trade and conference visitors will need to show both their event registration and their train ticket in order for the discount to apply.
