We know that finding somewhere to sit is important to our visitors, and with the show footprint being even bigger this year, rest areas will be even more critical to your enjoyment.

There will be plenty of seating areas dotted around the show, and we will provide more benches and seats than ever.

There will be catering points in every hall (including a Gin and Fizz bar in Hall 9) for you to purchase refreshments.

A full list of catering facilities will be available soon.

Due to the pandemic, there may be some difference to the way food is served but we are assured by the NEC that there will be plenty of options for hot and cold food and drinks.
