The NEC is clearly signposted on the M42, M40 and M6 with extensive parking facilities on site. In fact, it’s no more than a three-hour journey for 75% of the UK's population!

The closest airport is Birmingham Airport. From here you can take the free air-rail link to Birmingham International Railway Station located at the upper level of Terminal 1. The train runs every 2 minutes and only takes 90 seconds. When you arrive just head straight through to the NEC.

Depending on where you began your journey, you may be able to travel directly by train to the NEC by alighting at Birmingham International Railway Station. (If your starting station doesn’t provide a direct service to Birmingham International, you may need to change at Birmingham New Street first.) The entrance to the NEC is on the right hand side as you exit the station and is clearly signposted.

If you require a visa to attend TCT 3Sixty, it is essential that you begin the application process as soon as possible in order to obtain your visa in time.

Visa application procedures for entering many countries, and in particular the UK, have become stricter and more complex following recent terrorist activities, and therefore it can take much longer to process your application than in previous years. You can find useful information as GOV.UK.

You must submit your own application to the relevant authority and follow up accordingly. TCT Sixty, is unable to follow up your application on your behalf or enter into direct correspondence with consulates.

A Visa Support Letter will only be issued for Speakers and Exhibitors who have been invited by TCT 3Sixty or who have paid their exhibition registration fee in full. Once we have approved the abstract and confirmed a time slot for the proposed Speaker / confirmed receipt of payment from the proposed Exhibitor we will need full name, date of birth, nationality, passport number and passport expiry date - Only then can we issue a Visa Support Letter. The Visa Support Letter will confirm the event’s title, date and location. It will also confirm whether the individual is a Speaker or Exhibitor.

A Visa Support Letter does not imply any undertaking to provide funding nor act as a financial guarantee for your stay in the UK.

TCT 3Sixty, reserves the right not to issue a Visa Support Letter in certain cases even if above conditions have been met. Exhibition Fees will not be refunded in the case of a Visa not being obtained.
