Carer Pass applications will open once tickets go on-sale. Please note you need to purchase a weekend, general or priority ticket in order to qualify for a complimentary pass for your carer.

If you are arriving by private car and have your Blue Badge with you, you will be directed to the nearest disabled car park - where you can be dropped off and picked up at the end of your visit. Please be aware that the NEC is a private site.

The NEC aims to be fully user-friendly for visitors with access needs. The AccessAble website gives you the accessibility information you need to work out if a place is going to be accessible for you. To view their guide to the NEC please click here.

Wheelchairs are available free of charge for blue badge holders and £5 for all other visitors. The number of wheelchairs we have available is limited, so if you’ve got your own, please bring it with you.

Assistance dogs are welcome, but we do not recommend that you bring them to events where noise levels are high.

Accessible toilets are available across the venue. Changing Places facilities are also available by Hall 20, on the Atrium side of site and by Hall 2, on the Piazza side of site (both of these are accessible with a radar key).

The Changing Places facilities provide more space for up to 2 carers - and extra features to meet additional needs, including height adjustable adult-sized changing benches and a hoist system.
