NEC Group

The NIA has been a huge draw for visitors to Birmingham since it was officially opened in 1991; the flexible arena has since gained a global reputation for world-class sports, headline comedy and music, and a diverse range of crowd-pleasing live entertainment.

Now it's time to look to the future.

Set to undergo a £20.6 million transformation, the modernisation of the NIA will include improved facilities and a much greater emphasis on both the pre and post show experience. Coupled with an exciting partnership with Barclaycard, the NIA will offer a vastly improved experience for anyone setting foot in the arena.

The NIA, A Barclaycard Unwind Experience, will reopen at the end of 2014 and will offer amazing newexperiences, as well as first-class facilities and the world's best performers.

Don't play here for the name. Don't come because, according to Dave Grohl, “Playing Wembley Stadium is an honour and the greatest night in our band’s lives.”

Do it because it makes sense. It’s:

Loud - acoustic design typically achieves 106db at mixer
Big - 80,000 end-on capacity
Flexible - some nights curfew is 11pm, our lower tier can be reserved or operate free-flow GA with the pitch
Worth it - in 2009, we sold on average £250,000 worth of tickets per concert and we have 41 merchandise units for maximum spend

Let your head rule your heart. Choose Wembley.
