When and where is IRX 2020?
IRX takes place across two days at the conveniently located National Exhibition Centre (NEC) near Birmingham on:
Wednesday 1 April 2019: 09:00 - 17:00
Thursday 2 April 2019: 09:00 - 16:00
The venue is easy to access by car, train or plane.
The NEC is located next to Birmingham International train station and the halls are connected so you won’t even need to brave the elements. Direct services run all day, however if you’re travelling from further afield you may need to catch a connecting train at Birmingham New Street, which is less than a 15-minute journey away.
