The NEC, the UK’s largest events space together with Vivid Experience, the Midland’s leading Christmas party operator, have teamed up to create the UK’s ultimate Christmas party venue for 2013, branded ‘Christmas Party World’.

The party will take in the entire Hall 12 at the NEC with around 10,000sqm of flexible event space, expanding or decreasing in size to accommodate exclusive clients of between 500-3500 guests, as well a series of mixed party nights with tables of 10 upwards.

The 2013 theme will be ‘Cirque’ based, with an array of aerial performances taking advantage of the NEC’s 10m internal height.

Richard Longhill, Managing Director of Vivid Experience which operates venues across the Midlands, said: “The NEC is a world class venue in a great location with superb travel and hotel links. The venue offers us unrivalled options to create the next level of Christmas party, quite literally a ‘Christmas party world’ under one roof. The response from businesses so far has been phenomenal and we already have strong enquiries from prestigious companies looking to book the venue on an exclusive basis.”

Reservations for exclusive parties are being taken now, with tickets going on sale to individuals and businesses for mixed party nights from June.

Guests at the Christmas parties - which will run from 6 December to 21 December inclusive - will be treated to a full evening of entertainment, indoor fairground rides and dinner by the NEC Group’s multi award winning caterer Amadeus, all set within Vivid’s trademark themed party environment.

Kathryn James, NEC Managing Director said: “We’ve hosted some very successful large dinners at the NEC in recent years and are well aware of the potential to take things to the next level by opening a premium Christmas party venue. The flexible space we can offer really sparks creativity and will appeal to a wide range of event organisers. In addition, it provides us with a great opportunity to gauge interest if we choose to consider a more permanent dining and awards space at the NEC. It’s a very exciting time for both companies.”
