I have recently moved with another event to the Ricoh Arena just down the way in Coventry, it is a fantastic venue. They were really helpful and as its a football ground used to large crowds, with ample parking. The best thing is that it is several decent sized rooms off a “main street” with the food areas.

I would certainly consider them should you wish to move venues, remain in the Midlands, without going to one giant hall like you would with the NEC.

WE have visited the Ricoh during the Insomnia event. Whilst it is quite large it struck us as a somewhat awkward arrangement of rooms. But what makes it so unlikely we could use it is that the hotel ONLY has 110 rooms.
the Hilton has over 700 and all were in use over the UKGE weekend and we know that the Plaza and other hotel rooms were also in use. The nearest other hotels to Ricoh are 10 to 15 mins away. That makes it pretty much a none starter given the type of event we are ADF our client base many of whom want to stay onsite or close by..
