The NEC Group has announced its new preferred signage supplier as the team gears up for the safe resumption of the live events industry.
The leading West Midlands business has signed a multi-year deal with graphics and display specialists Aurora, based on Gravelly Industrial Park in Birmingham.
Supplying a wide variety of window vinyls, exhibition signage and hoardings, Aurora products have already been seen across NEC Group sites over the past eight years, further cementing their relationship with preferred supplier status as the business prepares to reopen.
The announcement continues the Group’s commitment to supporting local businesses at its venues including the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), International Convention Centre (ICC) and Utilita Arena Birmingham.
Ross Parker, Head of Commercial Partnerships, said: “Aurora have been integral to our signage over the past eight years and we are delighted to make this announcement.
“Having already worked with various areas of the business including Arenas, Media Partnerships and Exhibitions, we’re thrilled to welcome them on board as a preferred supplier.
“We’re excited to build on this already strong relationship and take this partnership to the next level.”
Greg Lloyd, Business Development Manager at Aurora, said: “We’ve been working with the NEC Group for more than eight years, building that much-needed trust when it comes to delivering quality products, on time, even with very short deadlines.
“We are proud to have played a crucial role in protecting NEC staff and visitors from the very beginning of the pandemic, with signage designed for social distancing as well as protective screens.
“It’s great to now get back to preparing for large scale events returning and being part of the full re-opening. We look forward to our relationship continuing to grow into the future.”
