About Us

Formed in 2018, we started life as a supplier of pop-up meeting zones for conferences and exhibitions throughout the UK and mainland Europe. The aim was to create dedicated zones for exhibitors and delegates to use for presentations and private meetings.

Using our experience gained from the events side, we began to develop a next generation pod (modular built small room) to provide a flexible workplace solution for the office environment and for new remote working opportunities in destination venues under the Opus brand.

The Opus Pod portfolio is an enabler to power new ways of working in the traditional office setting or in touchdown spaces. They provide complete flexibility and are designed to meet different needs for quiet solo work and collaboration or team meetings. We are also developing wellbeing applications with a fully integrated private space for a video consultation with a healthcare professional or counsellor.

As a separate venture, we created XEC Spaces as a touchdown work and business meeting space solution. The first locations are at the NEC in Birmingham and will be adding two further spaces in Central Birmingham in late 2021.

We are true innovators with a passion for bringing new ideas to market. These include initiatives such as Take10, which uses an adapted Opus Pod to create an escape space allowing the occupant to select an immersive audio soundscape – taking time out from a busy day out to recharge the body and mind.



Opus Pod are spacious, acoustic and designed to create new or additional spaces for solo work and meetings. They are an enabler to meet the changing needs of the hybrid workspace and can help support productivity and wellbeing.

The focus is on the function and how the pods can be applied to help business adapt to a post pandemic world. We offer three models for solo work and meetings for up to six people.

There are options for the exterior colour and interior layouts with furniture packages to meet the different environments and settings.

The pods are manufactured using aluminium and carbon polymer with tempered glass for added rigidity. The interior has acoustic panels with power sockets, USB points, silent air ventilation and LED lighting with a sensor. AV screens can be added as an option.

We are launching a separate OPUS Pod website which will contain full product information, interior options and pricing which will include leasing. All pods are installed by our fully trained team and come with a 12 month warranty.

XEC Spaces

XEC Spaces is a fast growing network of flexible work and meeting spaces in destination venues. They are designed to provide a touchdown solution for members and their guests to work, meet or simply take time out to enjoy a complimentary refreshment.

The first XEC Spaces are at the NEC in Birmingham with planned expansion to create a network of locations across the Midlands region. There are three types of XEC Space.

XEC Lounge – a functional open plan lounge with solo work and meeting pods with a pay to enter fee starting at £10.00 per hour and options to use a separate boardroom.

XEC Hub – dedicated micro workspace for industry specific related activity. The first Hub will be at the NEC with a membership model for companies directly involved in the events sector.

XEC Network Pods – in September 2021, we are piloting a network work pod in a high-profile destination location. Bookable by the hour, the pods will provide an instant workspace for people on the move who want to use a private space for work and video calls.

We are open to working in partnership with space owners who want to add an XEC proposition to their location. For further information or to discuss an opportunity, please hello@xecspaces.com

Event Solutions

We create meeting and networking zones at exhibitions and conferences to enable more effective interactions.

Based at the NEC, our fleet of meeting pods are available to hire on a day rate or for longer periods. They are fully mobile with power charging, lighting and other features. They provide an alternative and quiet space for those important discussions and presentations with clients and prospects.

Our onsite team will deliver and commission the pods before the event starts. As many of the pods are sponsored by one or more brands, we can print graphics and add other branding elements if required.

As the events industry prepares to re-open following the pandemic, person to person interaction will be vital to our economic recovery as business look to engage. Our pods will create the right kind of atmosphere to power these meaningful discussions.

Subject to location, quantity and duration, the hire fees for the meeting pods range from £150.00 per day for events at the NEC.

In addition to the pods, we also have the pop-up XEC Lounge concept which is a completely managed solution for up to 100 people.
