The NBS has had several renovations since the tournament's last visit to the venue in 2016, including an expanded settee area and redesign of the concourse on the fourth floor. The stadium seating also has been removed, and the latest addition prior to the start of the 2023 event will be new scoreboards for the 78 lanes used for the Open Championships and Bowlers Journal Championships.
