Disabled Pre-Paid Parking

Problems booking parking in advance?

Where the event or show that you wish to pre-book express parking for does not come up as an option, there are two reasons for this:

1) Express parking is not available for every single event.

2) Events are sometimes put onto the system closer to the date.

To check to see if this is the case telephone: 0844 338 8338 (Selection option 2)

Fax: 0844 581 1434


In such cases as the two above you can:

1) Still pre-book using the standard option. See the link below.

2) Arrange parking on the day of the event.

Parking guidance

Can I cancel or amend my car parking booking if my plans change?  For NEC Express, you can cancel your booking up to 48hrs before your event with a full refund minus a £5.00 admin fee. You can cancel or make changes to your booking by clicking on ‘Manage My Booking’ on the NEC Express booking site or from you confirmation email.

Does pre-booking guarantee my parking space in a specific car park?  No – you should follow signage once on site to the closest allocated public car park for your event.

If you have lost your booking confirmation number, you will be able to retrieve the details from the “Manage My Booking” link in the top right hand corner of the Exhibitor Advantage booking page or your email confirmation.  You can also call the Sales & Customer Support Department on 0844 338 8338 select option 2 and they will be able to assist with your booking details.
