The NEC, Birmingham has been undergoing a £4.5 million transformation and modernisation. The results were unveiled in its Big Reveal event last month.

The NEC campus attracts 7 million visitors a year to 750 events across its sites. The new transformation has also introduced the venue’s first permanent attraction, Bear Grylls Adventure.

Le Maitre Events was at the Big Reveal, firing a range of pyrotechnics including 150′ Comets, Mines and Concussions. Other effects in action were our Salamander Quad Pro flame machines. These can shoot flames up to 8.5 metres, making them ideal for adding the wow factor to outdoor events.
