BVA Live is located in Hall 8 of the NEC

FREE PARKING is available, park in any of the car parks and show your attendee badge when leaving the car park to exit. Shuttle buses are available from the car park to Hall 8.


Reminder: you will not be travelling into Central Birmingham! BVA Live is conveniently located within the NEC. Not only does this make travel convenient both on the rails and the roads but it means everything you need for a great experience is a stone's throw away within Resorts World. We have put together a short guide on how to find us as easily as possible.

You won’t even need to brave the elements. Direct services run all day, however if you’re travelling from further afield you may need to catch a connecting train at Birmingham New Street, which is less than a 15-minute journey away. Just enough time to fuel up on caffeine. For more information, visit National Rail or call them on 08457 484950.

You’ll find us clearly signposted from all motorways and major routes including the M42, M40 and M6 - just pop B40 1NT in your sat nav. When you arrive at the NEC don’t follow your sat nav anymore, look out for the show name you're visiting on our signs. Then, simply jump on our free shuttle bus or take a leisurely stroll along the signposted footpaths.  Keep up to date with what’s happening on the roads via Highways England’s website.
