Located in the heart of the UK, the International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham is one of Europe’s premier conference and meetings venues, offering an extensive range of first-class facilities.

From small meetings for just a few people, to international conferences with several thousand delegates, the ICC Birmingham boasts 10 meeting rooms and 10 conference halls, including its flagship Hall 1 auditorium and the recently refurbished, larger Hall 3, which can accommodate 3,000 delegates or provide more than 3,000m² of exhibition space. The dedicated registration area has one of the UK’s largest media walls that can be utilised to add value to any event.

The venue hosted more than 350 events last year, accommodated over 300,000 delegates and has been acclaimed with multiple awards, recognising everything from its position in the international conference market to its impact on British business tourism.

award winning catering

The teams at the ICC understand that food can make or break an event.  Fortunately, that is a view shared by their in-house (and multi-award-winning) catering team, Amadeus, who boast over 40 years of industry experience.

In 2017, the ICC became the first conference venue in the UK to gain accreditation from Food for the Brain - an educational charity which promotes the importance of nutrition in mental health and well-being.  Led by Amadeus, this means that delegates can now benefit from nutritionally balanced menus which support energy, concentration and performance.

a dynamic destination

It's not just the venue that draws the crowds, but the location too.  Luckily for visitors to the ICC, the venue is located right in the middle of Birmingham, a city full of confidence, ambition and entrepreneurial spirit.

Retail and financial powerhouses, award-winning architecture, advanced engineering and culinary excellence. It’s fair to say Birmingham continues to be a city that never rests on its laurels – always leading the way, setting new standards and pushing forwards to show the world that it’s one of the most dynamic, diverse and ambitious cities in Europe.

It’s also the home of more start-up companies than any UK destination outside of London, and has become a base for financial giants such as Deutsche Bank, Deloitte and HSBC. Of course, it’s not just the serious business community that’s attracting people and putting the city firmly on the world stage. It’s the seriously vibrant culture and lifestyle offering that awaits the moment you arrive.
