What do I need to do to validate my ticket?

You need to make sure that you have confirmation that you are attending The Skills Show at the NEC with you when you are travelling (as the conductor may ask you for this on the train).

If you haven’t already booked your FREE tickets to The Skills Show:

So, please make sure you have your exhibitor/visitor passes or email confirmation with you.

Don’t delay! You can’t get the discounted tickets if it’s less than 24 hours before you’re due to travel.

Booking tips

  • You must show your event ticket along with your Virgin Train ticket when on board for your discount to be valid.
  • 25% discount is only valid for a show and venue located on the West Coast Main Line with Virgin Trains. So if you're travelling with more than one train operator in your journey, the discount applies to the Virgin Trains part of your journey only.
  • Each booking may be made for up to 9 adult passengers.
  • Terms and conditions apply - see Virgin Trains website for full details

I’m staying overnight in Birmingham before my event so my train ticket date won’t match the event details – does this matter?

As long as you have your hotel booking with you and are within a few days either side of the event when you travel then your ticket will be valid.
