Exhibitors look set to benefit from a partnership between Budget Car Rental, and the owner of the UK’s largest exhibition venue, the NEC Birmingham.
The partnership is one element of a plan from the NEC Group to provide a better customer experience for exhibitors, visitors and organisers who use or visit the NEC or ICC venues.
Exhibitors Can Cut Their Costs With One-Way Van Hire
One immediate benefit of the partnership for exhibitors is the recent opening of on-site van hire facilities, which means exhibitors can take advantage of Budget Vans one-way hire service.
This service from Budget offers two advantages; convenience and cost.
Firstly, visitors can drop off their van directly at the NEC after unloading their exhibits.
Secondly, exhibitors need only pay for van hire for each leg of their journey to and from the NEC as opposed to paying for a week long rental. This is where the savings will be made, and that’s good news for exhibitors especially for those that exhibit at multiple NEC events each year.
Instead of the van being parked on-hire at the venue during the open days of the show, Budget will re-hire it to other customers during this period. When the show is over, the exhibitor uses another separate hire, to get their exhibits back to base.
Book One-Way Van Hire Via The Exhibitor Manual
The NEC team is promoting this excellent cost-saving service to their exhibitors via the Exhibitor Manual that they produce for each event.
Discount for NEC Customers
As the official car rental partner to The NEC, Budget is offering all event goers, including those attending events at Genting Arena, Barclaycard Arena and The Ticket Factory, up to 30% off car hire across the UK.
More Services Are Expected To Follow
Both parties in the partnership are keen to develop additional services that will benefit users of NEC Group facilities, with exhibitors and event organisers being seen as the people who could gain most not just from savings, but from the added convenience of Budget operating on-site.
Customer experience, both at the venue and within the events that take place at NEC Group locations is something that the NEC team and show organisers are always striving to improve and any new services offered will have this ambition firmly in mind.
