National Caravan Council Events (NCCE) has signed a five-year deal with Birmingham’s NEC, which will ensure its two prestigious shows continue to be held there.

The Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show and Motorhome and Caravan Show, held in February and October respectively, are both among the top ten most visited exhibitions in the UK. 

John Lally, CEO of NCCE, said: "We are looking forward to continuing to work with the NEC for the next five years. No other venue can bring the flexibility and space we need to make our shows successful.  This contract also provides NCCE with long-term certainty, which results in more benefits than a shorter contract." 

Kathryn James, managing director of the NEC Group Conventions and Exhibitions, said: "We are delighted that NCCE have chosen to stay with us until 2021. They bring almost 200,000 visitors and over 500 exhibitors with them each year, making them one of our largest organising customers." 

The upcoming Motorhome and Caravan Show (17-22 October) occupies 11 halls and is expected to bring around 100,000 visitors to the NEC.
