While we’re proud to bring some new blood to the conferencing sector, we’re certainly not new to hosting successful conference events.

That’s because the Vox Conference Centre is supported by the management team behind the ICC and Convention Centre Dublin, who bring over 25 years of experience in delivering quality conferences, meetings and networking events. So if you’re looking for a fresh perspective from trusted conference professionals, you’ve come to the right place.


  • The Vox opens its doors

    We were very excited to open the doors of our brand new, technologically advanced, cutting edge conference centre in Resorts World Birmingham. Why? Well, we don't believe in standing still.

  • Resorts World - a game changer

    Genting UK starts work on Resorts World Birmingham which will transform the NEC campus into a 24-7 destination and play home to the Vox Conference Centre.

  • A new face for ticketing

    The Ticket Factory is launched evolving from the NEC, the LG Arena, The NIA and the NEC Group's box offices to become a new force in ticketing.

  • NEC Group goes global

    NEC Group International appointed consultants for Asia World Expo and by The Royal Bank of Scotland Group to consult on Gogarburn Headquarters Conference & Training Centre, Edinburgh.

  • DNA makes an appearance

    The ICC witnessed history at the International Union of Biochemistry in July 2000, when it was formally announced to the world that the structure of DNA had been cracked.

  • ICC hosts World Leaders

    The ICC had the honour of playing host to the G8 Summit.

  • National Indoor Arena, ready!

    The NIA (now Barclaycard Arena) is opened by Linford Christie and shortly afterwards Gladiators begins an 8 year run that would be etched into the history books.

  • ICC says hello world

    The ICC is officially opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II to rave reviews and begins its now rich history as a world-leading conference venue.

  • The NEC Arena starts to rock

    The building work of the NEC Arena (now Genting Arena) is completed and the first event was a concert by legendary rockers Queen.

  • The NEC begins its journey

    HM Queen Elizabeth II opens International Spring Fair at the NEC.

What Makes us great

In addition to the support from the brains behind the ICC, the Vox is also part of the NEC Group; one of the world’s top venue management companies.

For over 40 years the group has been Bringing Live to Life™, whether that’s at the Genting Arena, NEC, Barclaycard Arena or through their award-winning catering division Amadeus. Every year over four million people are entertained across the NEC Group’s many venues. The Vox promises to continue this fine tradition.

Some things we're proud of

and some great people we've worked with.
