Hollywood Monster has been named as a ‘preferred supplier’ to the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, cementing the relationship between the two Midlands-based companies, and for the next two years, the firm will be providing printing and signage services for the Group’s venues, shows and events.

The NEC Group is one of the world's largest venue management companies, consisting of the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), International Convention Centre (ICC), the Vox at Resorts World Birmingham, Genting Arena, and the Barclaycard Arena.

Hollywood Monster’s new tender ensures that the company will provide signage across all the venues, for events, commercial spaces, branding and rebranding, as well as wayfinding. The NEC alone hosts over 500 events each year and attracts an immense 2.1million visitors annually.

The partnership with the NEC Group has been cultivated over a number of years; Hollywood Monster has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with the Group, working closely with the ICC in particular, for previous events such as British Small Animal Veterinary Association and The Conservative Party Conference.

According to Hollywood Monster’s Simon McKenzie, the company can’t wait to see what projects lie in store and how this partnership continues to grow going forward.

“We continue investing in the best printing technology to ensure that we remain a true player in the UK market,” he says. “Some of our new machines, such as the MTEX-5032 and Vutek flatbed printer, allow us to pull off some of the biggest and best jobs. We can print up to 5-metre wide formats with the Vutek, as well as create textile printing with the MTEX-5032 that allows for work to be sent in small and flexible packages. In the market we operate, it’s all about remaining at the forefront of technology, and our agility and expertise are what the NEC Group requires to satisfy its clients’ needs.”
