    While the NEC had an incredible year, hosting so many new and relocated events, it's impressive how they've diversified their offerings. From Equine Shows to Smart Factory Expos, the range is outstanding. Personally, I enjoy keeping up with these events while catching up on my favorite serials and playing online casino games for some downtime fun. I especially enjoy playing in Mr. Green's casino for its diverse games and engaging experienc. What's been your go-to event or show at the NEC that you've found most fascinating?
