WARWICKSHIRE EVENT CENTRE: Leamington Spa

Every year, the Warwickshire Event Centre (WEC) welcomes in excess of 35,000 visitors to the West Midlands venue.

Located on the outskirts of the historical town of Leamington Spa, the venue is centrally located in the charismatically-named ‘William Shakespeare County’ of Warwickshire, while enjoying easy access to all transport networks.

Set within a 100-acre site, the WEC is a versatile venue which makes it a prime location for a range of trade exhibitions and public events. Additionally, the venue is based in the West Midlands, making it an ideal access point for all areas of the UK.

From trade exhibitions, product launches, fairs, auctions, animal shows, staff training events and many more, the venue has hosted over 130 events to date.

The WEC is owned and managed by Meridienne Exhibitions Ltd, a company with 40 years’ experience of event management, who share their knowledge and experience with clients booking the venue, resulting in many show hosts choosing the venue year after year.

WHAT’S ON?

The exhibition hall hosts many shows throughout the year including two model train exhibitions, including the Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition, and the leading model rail International N Gauge Show, the exhibition dedicated to ‘N Gauge’ modelling. The WEC will also host the ‘creepiest and crawliest’ show of the year, the 33rd British Tarantula Society Exhibition, but to name a few.
