It’s going to be the biggest event that the world of personal finance has ever seen, with 18,000 square metres of the NEC dedicated to 3,000 festival goers, hundreds of exhibitors, speakers and entertainers! Filling two halls of the NEC (that’s 4 football pitches!), the Festival of Financial Planning is going to be enormous. With excellent facilities and fantastic transportation links, the NEC is well positioned to accommodate such a large event, and is the ideal venue to experience the truly unique festival experience.

NEC was officially opened in 1976 by Her Majesty The Queen. Since then NEC has significantly grown in size and reputation, and became the UK’s number one venue of choice for organisers, exhibitors and visitors. The venue can provide over 182,000m2 of covered indoor space across 20 exhibition halls and 34 conference suites and also has an additional outdoor space. It is a perfect fit for conferences and live events - with the flexibility to host any size event from 20-5000 delegates

Benefiting from unrivalled connectivity by road, rail and air, the NEC is the most conveniently located venue in the country. 75% of the UK’s population live within a three-hour drive of the venue and can access it through the fantastic transport network that surrounds the site.
