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 halls and 11 executive meeting rooms, including its flagship Hall 1 auditorium and Hall 3, which can accommodate 3,000 delegates or provide more than 3,000m² of exhibition space. Dedicated registration areas and private foyers mean that multiple events can take place across the venue at one time. Organisers can also make use of the venue’s digital screen solutions to support events, including one of the UK’s largest media walls that can add value to events and brands.
The venue hosted more than 400 events last year, accommodated over 350,000 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.
Events aren’t simply our lifeblood at the ICC, they’re our passion. Any event held at the ICC, regardless of shape or size, benefits from the game-changing experience of our passionate in-house teams. As well as knowing events, they’re also experts on the venue, and bring that insight and knowledge to every event, working alongside event organisers and clients to ensure they get the very best from the venue.
Our team, from our technicians to our catering staff, our hosts to our event managers, are ready to play their part in delivering exceptional events day after day.
