Home to the NEC, possibly the most famous venue in England, Birmingham is the ideal location to hold events and conferences towards the larger end of the scale. Whilst the NEC is situated alongside the M42 and easily reached via the M6 or M1 motorways, Birmingham also has strong public transport links, including rail routes to Birmingham New Street and Birmingham International, the latter of which serves the city’s international airport and its ten million passengers each year.
As well as its thriving business community, Birmingham has its own university and in amongst its redbrick buildings are the meeting rooms of venuebirmingham. At the heart of Birmingham city centre therefore ideally located for events whose audience comes mainly from the city’s own central business district, The Priory Rooms cater for small business meetings, training days and conferences alike. Similarly, the International Convention Centre, or ICC, offers flexible convention space with ten large halls and ten executive meeting rooms, all under cover of a single roof.
Thanks to its West Midlands location, Birmingham conference venues are no more than about 120 miles from London and Leeds, or 90 miles from Manchester, Liverpool and Sheffield. Combined with the main motorway links from all areas of the country, this makes conference venues in Birmingham a compelling choice for events with a nationwide audience – even Glasgow and Edinburgh are less than 300 miles away by road.
Of course, if your delegates are arriving from all over the UK, it is likely that some will need to spend the night in Birmingham. With many of the city’s conference venues located close to, or even inside, respected executive hotel chains we can cater for your attendees’ accommodation needs at ease.
