Welcome to Birmingham: a bustling economic hub in the heart of England. It thrives in diversity, from its rich blend of ethnic culture to the sea of business travellers who flock to the city for conferences and events.

With a variety of excellent sporting and racecourse venues, atmospheric arenas and beautiful stately homes within a stone’s throw, it’s no wonder Birmingham has a lot to offer. For a meeting with that excitement factor or an event that leaves a lasting impact, we are confident that our venues in Birmingham and the Midlands will reach above and beyond your expectations.

Why should I choose a meeting or event venue in Birmingham?

Birmingham is known to many as ‘the second city’ and is a hub of entrepreneurial activity. Over a half of the 4,000 inventions copyrighted in the UK each year are from Birmingham and an abundance of business start-ups are continuously emerging. National statistics show that Birmingham is the largest centre in the UK for employment for health, education and public administration and second largest for financial and other business services. Perhaps there’s something in the water!

Due to its central location, Birmingham benefits from being at the core of cross-country travel, with many routes around the country passing through. Whether you are travelling by train, plane or by the motorway, it couldn’t be anymore simple to get to and from the city. Birmingham New Street is the busiest train station in the UK outside of London for entries, exits and interchanges. Birmingham Moor Street and Birmingham Snow Hill are alternative railway stations with services running between the north and London Marylebone. Birmingham airport is a mere 6 miles for the city centre.

Did you know that Birmingham has more miles of canals than Venice and more parks than anywhere in Europe? In between the rush of day-to-day business are vast areas of green land to unwind and refresh the mind. Yes, Birmingham is an idyllic destination to host your meeting or event.

What unique venues can I book in Birmingham and the Midlands?

Five minutes away from the city centre is the well-renowned Edgbaston Cricket Ground. This venue is the third oldest cricket stadium in the world and is a leading conference facility with captivating views. For an event that creates intrigue and conversation, Edgbaston offers exactly that.

Slightly outside of Birmingham, we have the Ricoh Arena in Coventry: a versatile event space which will cover all of your needs. The Jaguar exhibition hall hosts over 8000 people, but alternative rooms offer the perfect space for small meetings. Accommodation and parking is just outside of the doors of this mammoth venue, making organising your business trip more simplistic than ever.

Or perhaps an arena in Nottingham? Motorpoint Arena Nottingham & National Ice Centre is an extremely dynamic venue which provides a blank canvas to mould to all ideas for your event.

Racecourse venues around the Midlands include Nottingham Racecourse, Warwick Racecourse and Cheltenham Racecourse, which all offer excellent event spaces. Cheltenham Racecourse recently benefitted from a £45 million redevelopment – one of the biggest investments in UK sport. From the catering to the meeting rooms with a view, everything is more dramatic and exciting than ever before.

Slightly off the beaten track is Weston Park - a stunning stately home venue that provides a warm welcome. It’s a fantastic feeling as you enter the grand iron gates and proceed through the grounds, spotting the resident sheep and deer along the way. That feeling of exclusivity at your meeting or event is a real crowd-pleaser. Be sure to take a tour around the house and explore the unique rooms within.

A complete contrast to Weston Park is a venue in Tamworth that is perfect for incentivising your team. SnowDome offers an après ski atmosphere alongside the opportunity to throw yourself into various snow activities – a great way to liven up your next meeting!

And who could possibly forget Leicester City Football Club at the King Power Stadium in Leicester. With Leicester’s incredible performance in the 2016 Premiership, you’ll feel a part of the action as you look out onto the home-ground of one of the most talked about teams in football.
