NEC Group advocates sustainable asset disposal with NCM

The NEC Birmingham

Leading live events company NEC Group is delivering on its ‘Better Events Strategy’ by promoting more sustainable and ethical disposal of catering, bar equipment, rigging, plant and machinery that is surplus to requirements.

The Group has appointed South Yorkshire based auction and asset management specialists NCM Auctions to consolidate surplus equipment from the NEC Group’s flagship venue, the NEC, Birmingham.

The exclusive online auction features more than 300 lots from across the NEC, including catering equipment and drink dispensers, machinery and access platforms, rigging, event seating, large format printing equipment, furniture, machine parts and much more.

NCM’s unique approach allows this equipment to be redeployed and renewed rather than going to landfill. A sustainable approach that helps drive positive social and economic impact while helping the NEC Group to ensure its work in the events industry is as sustainable as possible, limiting its environmental impact.

Alex McCormick from NCM Auctions explains how important these types of auctions are to smaller businesses:

“When a leader in the events space like NEC Group partners with us to consolidate their assets it makes this equipment and machinery available to smaller businesses, whether they be start-ups, scale-ups, community groups or charities – they all benefit from gaining access to this kit at a fraction of the cost of trying to source or acquire it new.

This circular approach to reusing and redeploying equipment, that is very much in demand, helps divert it from landfill or expensive disposal costs. It’s a win-win situation for our auction buyers and the client.

I want to thank the team at NEC Group for working with us on this project and putting together such an extensive catalogue that has already received significant interest and pre-registration from our regular auction buyers.”

The NEC Group auction is online now, and bidding ends on 29 February.
