A large flexible space - many hire furniture options

Before placing your hire furniture order, you might need to consider a few points. An important consideration is your venue and how much space you have. When you have more to work with, then you might like to install a large number of hire furniture UK items to fill the venue and bring style and sophistication to your occasions. The National Indoor Arena (NIA) Birmingham offers an amazing amount of room, that also offers great flexibility. The full capacity is 12,700, but this can be adapted to suit your event. Because of the location’s retractable seating, then you can basically opt for a blank canvas in terms of your venue.

We cater for many different furniture hire clients, and deliver items throughout the UK for a variety of organisations via our next day delivery service. From organisations looking to hire education furniture for large exams, to corporations arranging conferences and conventions, as well as award ceremonies and sporting occasions, like cage fighting contests.

Hire chairs and many more items available

When you expect large crowds, such as those you may get at sporting events, or before shows when people are queuing, our chrome stretch barriers are ideal. They’re often chosen by our clients who want to direct crowds and mark out areas where it’s safe to stand or queue. Our new addition to this range is our black stretch barriers, which have the same features and a very classy appearance, great for corporate conventions and when you want a really professional look to your occasions.

As well as offering crowd control items, you can also give venues a VIP makeover with many of the products from our event furniture range. Adding a touch of glamour to your function is simple with our red carpets, in addition to our ropes and poles, that designate areas for your VIPs.

Any style hire furniture for large rooms

Another very important consideration when you’re choosing your hire furniture is the style of the venue and your occasion. As the NIA offers such a great deal of flexibility then the world is your oyster where style of your hire furniture is concerned. In fact, this location transforms from the NIA to the NIA Academy, giving further venues that can host 3,500 to 5,100 in a theatre style or 2,750 to 7,500 for standing only.

Depending on your function, you’re free to order exquisite banquet furniture from us for special balls and ceremonies, traditional stacking chairs for conferences and polyprop chairs for assessments, and much, much more!

Create your comfortable events too

We also have a fantastic range of reception furniture - like coffee tables, reception desks - and sofas that can create a relaxed vibe, that’s great for boosting networking and also gives delegates somewhere to wind down during conferences and hold informal meetings. Looking after your delegates beyond the actual event you’re running can go down very well with your visitors and guests.

A location to impress

This venue is in a very good location in terms of both travel routes and entertainment and food opportunities, the NIA also says that there are approximately 30,000 hotels in the West Midlands, meaning accommodation should be easy to find for visitors requiring somewhere to stay.

As well as being in close proximity to bars, restaurants and many hotels, the NIA itself is soon to undergo refurbishment that has a £20.6 million budget. Plan include making a feature of the venue’s canal-side location and renovating the entrance so it makes a real impact on visitors.

We offer hire chairs, tables and many other items
