This is an exhibition centre. You are 5 minutes on foot from Birmingham Airport and Birmingham International Railway Station. 

We do not have a venue hotel as there are many hotels with varying deals close to the Exhibition Centre. We would recommend taking an Uber or Taxi to the venue and picking up.

WHEN AND HOW TICKETS GO OUT (British competitors) 

The tickets for coaches and competitor passes will be sent out via the email address you gave when you entered, at the beginning of October.
