Clarion to the fore in bid for NEC contract

Clarion Events has emerged as the front-runner to win the contract to manage the NEC's in-house organising arm Centre Exhibitions.

Clarion - the former in-house organiser of Earls Court and Olympia Group (ECO) - confirmed that it is in advanced talks with the midlands venue.

NEC chief executive Andrew Morris further confirmed that following a strategic review of Centre Exhibitions, he is now in talks with a number of interested parties about the potential for a joint venture.

Morris said: "It's one of our priorities. We hope to complete our discussions soon and will then be able to present more detail."
