Birmingham is a melting point for events, with venues and opportunities to suit all budgets and types of events.
Being centrally located, more than 90% of the country is less than 3 hours away and Birmingham is a central hub for all major rail and motorway routes from North to South. Our airport is growing all the time with daily Middle East, East Coast US and seasonal Far Eastern flights along with many European services.
With the opening of the new New Street Railway Station (currently one of the most iconic architectural designs in Europe), there is no better time to host your event in Birmingham.
Clearwater Events offer a complimentary venue finding service and have access to the very best venues and negotiated rates in the city. So, we thought we would give you a few suggestions to our best corporate event venues in Birmingham.
0-15 Delegates: The Studio
The Studio, affectionately known as the Orange Café, is a hidden gem in the city.
Located on Cannon Street, the venue is a purpose built event space and offers highly modern, clean and crisp styling providing a perfect canvas for a variety of events.
The Studio has space which can take much larger events, but we really love the Atrium Bar which sits next to its fabulous Roof Garden – both are perfect spots for small meetings when looking for something a little different.
The Studio doesn’t have accommodation, which is why we suggest the venue for one-day smaller events. But, being centrally located you have over 22,000 bedrooms in the city to select from.
15-75 Delegates: Hotel La Tour
Hotel La Tour is smart, modern and a little bit funky and is winning rave reviews. Located within a five-minute walk to the city centre, you’ll be close to everything our city has to offer.
Hotel La Tour is one of the city’s newer corporate event venues so expect everything to look shiny and fresh. For meetings, The Auden Rooms can accommodate up to 140 guests theatre style, so in our opinion the overall meeting space is perfect for events for up to 75 guests whilst giving plenty of space for interaction, networking and learning.
Bedroom wise, think sleek lines and crisp linens; rooms certainly wouldn’t be out of place in Vogue magazine. But, being Birmingham, we don’t have the Vogue price tag.
75-150 Delegates: Park Regis Birmingham
Park Regis is our very latest hotel, which just launched in March 2016. The hotel is located close to Five Ways and is only a few minutes walk from the fashionable Brindley Place and the ICC & Barclaycard Arena.
This is the hotel to be seen in right now and its rooftop restaurant Rofuto is the talk of the town, serving authentic, Japanese izakaya style food. It also happens to be the highest restaurant in the Birmingham region, offering magnificent views of the ever-changing city skyline, visible through its floor to ceiling windows.
When it comes to corporate event venues, this hotel has it all and it’s perfect for events for up to 170 delegates theatre style. Think high tech, high spec and a very modern design with a classic twist. Its space is modular making it suitable for a variety of event options so provides a very flexible option.
If your event is residential, bedrooms are cosy with complimentary Wi-Fi, rain showers and the comfiest queen size beds!
150 Plus Delegates: Hilton Birmingham Metropole
For events above the 150 delegate mark, you’ll be looking at much bigger venues. And it doesn’t get much bigger than the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. Located at the NEC complex and Birmingham International Airport, this hotel is huge!
You can super-size your event to almost 1000 guests with a portfolio of event rooms that can used in a variety of ways for almost any type of event. With its convenient location, their meeting space lends itself to either day or residential events.
Bedroom wise, you are sure to be covered with concept rooms for the single traveler through to opulent suites larger than your average house!
