An event which showcases library and information services has sold out all its exhibition space after it moved from London to Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre.
The Library + information Show is moving to the NEC next month after a three-year residence at London's ExCeL centre, which was announced as the new home of the Motor Show only weeks ago.
Now in its 16th year, LiS is the annual industry focal point and only national library and information event in the UK.
The show's organisers took the decision to move the event following suggestions from visitors and exhibitors that a more "central location" would be more suitable. The show attracted 2,180 visitors to ExCeL in April last year, but organisers said the Midland event would be more successful.
Event director Nigel Clear said: "The additional resources now available will build on the excellent reputation that the show has enjoyed, and reinforce LiS as the number one event of its kind in Europe.
"The decision to move LiS to the NEC is primarily one of geography.
"We are serving a market where time and travel budgets are at a premium and as a national event we need to make it as accessible to as many visitors as possible - the NEC provides the ideal central location."
