Conventions at The NEC Birmingham

While any kind of event is unlikely now at The NEC, they used to happen before the pandemic. Such as Destination Star Trek and MCM Birmingham Comic Con.

Destination Star Trek has been held at the NEC a couple of times. MCM Birmingham Comic Con used to be about twice a year. All events like this have been cancelled due to the pandemic, and are instead going online on Zoom or Youtube.



This was held at the Birmingham NEC from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th October 2016 in Hall 4. Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek. It was the first official Star Trek Convention to be held in Birmingham. Get your hand stamped so that you can enter and exit the hall as many times as you want to on the day of your visit. Destination Star Trek returned to The NEC in 2018 and 2019.

This comic book convention is usually held at the Birmingham NEC, twice a year, usually in March and November. The November 2016 Comic Con was held over the weekend of Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th November 2016, in Hall 5. Although you had to queue up and get your hand stamped in Hall 1.
