Bringing more to the table

Using the freshest, sustainably-sourced ingredients, with innovative menus developed to suit clients’ individual requirements, the ICC delivers award-winning food to wow delegates.

Our catering team is made up of our award-winning chefs, supported by a fantastic service team of managers, team leaders and waiting staff. We’re proud to offer incredibly flexible dining options with packages and pricing levels to suit all budgets.
But, above all, we aim to set the benchmark for catering excellence in the live events industry. Our teams of talented chefs are part of Amadeus, the NEC Group’s in-house catering division, who have won more than 625 awards for quality, a clear recognition of the high standards that we constantly strive for.

The ICC is also proud to have become the first conference centre in the UK to gain accreditation from Food for the Brain – an educational charity which promotes the importance of nutrition and mental health and wellbeing.  Our accredited Focus Food menu is now available as one of our conference catering packages.  Find out more about the menu, the importance of Food for the Brain, and how we achieved our accreditation.


Keep your delegates’ energy levels up with inspiring food during their breaks. From tea and biscuits, freshly baked Danish pastries to Lincolnshire sausages served on ciabatta bread we are sure we can find something to keep your delegates going strong! We have a delicious selection of working lunch or finger and fork buffet options but if you’re looking for something different our innovative live edible garden, used as a fresh and healthy buffet offers the extra wow factor.

From tea and biscuits, freshly baked Danish pastries or light working lunches we can offer the perfect refreshments to suit any size meeting and budget. Take advantage of our deli lunch which uses only the freshest ingredients with optional seasonal and organic extras available throughout the year.

Whether it’s a gala dinner, an awards ceremony or another celebration, we can offer spectacular banquets with fantastic menus and theming for your guests.
