The 201-bedroom voco St. John's Solihull is a 10-minute drive from the NEC and is within easy reach of other NEC Group venues such as Vox Conference Venue and Resorts World Arena, with easy access to Birmingham International train station and Birmingham Airport.

Lisa Jobins, regional partnerships manager for the NEC Group, said: “It’s important for us to build a network of regional partners, with voco St. John's Solihull being a standout destination for those visiting or exhibiting on the NEC Campus.

“The hotel boasts spacious rooms and stylish interiors in an ideal location, just a stone’s throw away from our base. At the NEC Group we want to provide an all-encompassing visitor experience – which starts even before you reach the venues.”

Part of the InterContinental Hotels Group, St. John’s Solihull became the first voco hotel in England in 2019.

Manik Bhatla, head of sales for Voco St. John's Solihull, said: “The hotel's strategic location near the NEC positions it as a prime choice for event-goers, whether that’s live music at Resorts World Arena, attending a conference at Vox Conference Venue or exhibiting at the NEC.

We know guests staying with us will appreciate our luxurious accommodation and first-class service after a busy day at an event, with plenty of room to relax with our exquisite dining options and fitness centre.

“Our new partnership means more convenience for guests when visiting an event, with easy transport links.”
