Birmingham and the West Midlands is one of Europe’s most popular and thriving conference destinations, providing truly world-class M&E facilities and over 36,000 bed spaces.
With one of the youngest populations in the UK, the destination offers a compelling and varied lifestyle once the day's conference is done - a modern, exciting city region with unrivalled social activities, arts and culture, Michelin-starred restaurants and unlimited entertainment.
Its enviable location at the heart of UK and highly accessible transport network makes it an ideal host for events of all sizes. More than 90% of the UK is easily accessible within 4 travel time.
The West Midlands has won praise as a leading conferencing destination, in the 2020 annual British Meetings & Events Industry Survey (BMEIS). Birmingham has been named the country’s most popular location outside London for conferencing and events.
These are unprecedented times for the West Midlands, with domestic and international visitor numbers at record levels, and the region welcoming the highest proportion of business visits of all UK areas. With Coventry becoming the UK City of Culture in 2021 and Birmingham hosting the Commonwealth Games in 2022, this is the West Midlands’ time to shine.
We invite event organisers to speak to the Convention Bureau and our stand partners - Hilton Birmingham Metropole , Park Regis to find out how they can join forces with a confident, dynamic region, which hosts conferences and events like no other.
